"I have a fascination with merging the organic and the industrial, the natural and the machine-made. That's what sparks my passion for woodturning."

What's New


Small Favors Exhibition

The Center for Art in Wood, in collaboration with The Clay Studio, presents Small Favors: Think Inside the Box, which is now on view at the Center’s Museum Store and at The Clay Studio, in Philadelphia. The exhibition challenges artists to produce work using varied materials that fit inside a 4-inch acrylic cube.


OTI Rose Cup Award

The biannual Ornamental Turners International symposium was held in Denver, CO, September 2016, where Salesin was awarded the Rose Cup for best rose engine turning. The piece entitled "Jump Shot" was made from a single piece of cocobolo turned entirely on an Armbruster rose engine lathe.


Flashback | Fast Forward

This exhibition features two works from each artist— one from a past Center exhibition alongside a new piece. Each of the us shares our thoughts on the older work and being included in the Center exhibitions along with how the new piece reflects our evolving ideas, creative processes and techniques.
