VESSELS OF ILLUSION

Master woodturner, Trent Bosch,
shares his secrets on creating
hollow wood sculptures
that defy explanation.

Experienced wood lathe turners
attend Trent's work shops to
turn freshly cut "green wood"
into hollow forms with asymmetrical 
features and interior forms that are
"impossible to figure out."

(Hint: some pieces are turned,
then boiled in water to soften,
then inserted and glued into place.)

Trent visited St. Louis recently
to conduct a workshop for 
fellow wood turners.
His studio is located in Ft. Collins, Colorado.

  2. I think this is fascinating
    and really a handicraft
    the forms are soft and beautiful
    and you get the urge to touch them

    have a good sunday
