Phil Rose - Off-Axis/Multi-Axis Turning

Phil Rose is known for his thought-provoking wood-based art that starts life on a lathe but may be embellished with wood burning, dye, fused glass, or other delightful techniques. Some of his current work is inspired by thoughts of wave patterns and abstract shapes, as well as creating common objects with different wood. Phil strives to separate the mechanical aspects of woodturning from the physical results, inspiring views to not only admire the art but also wonder how it was created. Phil often says, “While I do generate ideas of art forms I would like to create, ultimately the wood needs to tell me what it wants to become for its second life.”

Off-Axis, Multi-Axis turning – Discuss and demonstrate different types of off-axis/multi-axis turning. Can include multiple projects, conversation on different techniques, and options to coordinate with on- or off-lathe embellishment. Turned pieces can include, snowman, vase, boxes, candlesticks, cups, and more.
