A Celebration of Wood
Author: Eckhard Fadtke
Master wood turner Eckhard Fadtke exhibits his intricate and beautiful wood-turned art pieces. Woodturning, for the artist, is a vehicle for connection to, and the transformation of, wood. Eckhard's approach to creating art is to bring nature's forms into his pieces, for example, when he duplicates a pattern in nature into the wood design, or creates a wood vessel inspired from nature, turning a flat piece of wood into a bowl or a kaleidoscope. Part of the transformation of the wood is through color, contrast and form.
