Artisans Studio Tour - Fred Williamson Figured Poplar Vessel.jpg

“I’ve been an artisanal woodworker since 1973, making furniture and turning on my homemade lathe. The last 20 years I have focused solely on greenwood turning of fine bowls from native woods, an increasingly satisfying process as I delve more and more into the nature of wood. I work with the special features of each log, striving for presence with each finished piece. Polished smooth, dried to a stabilized state, and given a hand-rubbed clear finish, the thin arcs of wood display the character and history of each tree, displaying the inherent beauty of figure and grain. Many pieces are meant to serve as functional salad bowls, while others are created simply for their artistic beauty.”
