Lathe turned wall sculptures The idea for my wall sculptures came about on a trip to Salt Lake City. During the flight I became intrigued with the patterns created by the plots of land as well as the crop circles from the farms below. By the time the plane landed, I had two pages of sketches and a head overflowing with ideas.

My wall sculptures start out as a single slab of wood that is then cut and arranged as a polyptych. The design and placement of all the centers is laid out before anything is ever mounted to the lathe. I have a 7ft faceplate mounted to my lathe giving the room to move the sculpture about as needed to turn each individual center
