Mike Sorge

The warmth of the undulating Black Walnut wings harmonize with the beautiful vortex artisan glass marble that Mike carefully captured with tolerances that allow the marble to rotate and spin. The Spirit Bird’s function is to tickle curiosity and inspire the imagination which naturally kindles the illimitable and inimitable potential (spirit) within each of us. Sculpted on the lathe at over 2000 rpm.

Creative Woodturning, an amazing medium and enjoyable art. Trees are magnificent, often living beyond several human lifetimes. When a tree dies its inherent natural beauty can be an ongoing voice. My methods sculpting Cascading Diamonds, Kissing Fish, Manta Rays, Spirit Birds, Trillium Boxes, Capturing Spheres and other original forms on the lathe combine playful exploration with patient, focused tool application, striving to reveal the inherent beauty of fallen trees in elegant, engaging and inspirational ways. My studio is an exhilarating zen zone inspired by personal studies, ancient and contemporary, in the brilliant cosmos, the positive potential of humanity and the beauty of nature.
