POTTERY PLACE PLUS—————A SPOKANE MIXED MEDIA GALLERY SINCE 1978
INNOVATION IN LOCAL PACIFIC NORTHWEST WOOD ART
I received a lathe as a Christmas gift from my wife and two boys in 1995. As soon as I started turning a piece of wood into shavings I was hooked. I have been going around in circles ever since. Hence the name “Wood Circles Simonsen” I am very grateful to the friends and neighbors that have provided their yard trees as a resource. The process of taking a chunk of wood, in its raw form and turning it into a piece of art can be very calming. Even when you end up turning a piece of wood into a pile of shavings, the shavings can still be used on the garden or bedding for the chickens. I love trying to unlock the beauty stored in a tree after years of growth. Enjoy nature, relish every moment.
