Rick Davenport, Wood Artist
The wood talks to me.
No kidding.
A raw piece of wood tells me its potential - how to rough cut it and prepare it for our
adventure on the lathe.
As the wood spins I hear the pleasant sound of the bowl gouge making a proper cut.
Sometimes it whines or grumbles , telling me the cut is wrong or there is dangerous fault in the
wood.
Occasionally, it roars as it flies to pieces.  (yes, I wear a mask)
And lastly, the finished piece screams with beauty, depth and proper form.
Ah!

There is a lot more that goes into creating turned wood art.
But it is my personal relationship with each piece of wood that makes it
special.

Thanks for visiting my website.
Please visit me at my shows, or contact me for an appointment.
Then you can touch, fondle and smell(!) my art work.
