Phil Colson - Fantasy Turning Demonstration
Elegant organics is a culmination of many years of turning and gardening.
These pieces are classical in design and organic in execution. I use
textures in my work that remind me of different barks, leaves, seedpods,
flowers, and other natural elements. What some people view as defects
in the wood, interest me the most. I find inspiration in the way the grain
swirls, feathers, or spalts. Bark inclusions and knots create pictures for
me and I try to include them in the design. I love the natural color of
wood and add wood tones only when I feel the piece should be shaded to
enhance the look I am after. I use flat or satin finishes because it is more
touchable. Please pick up the pieces and look with your hands as well as
