Improving Bowl Woodturning Skills and Experimenting with Bountiful Bowls
John A. Burek, Metals/Jewelry
Faculty Mentor: Professor Sunhwa Kim, Art and Design
I present a slideshow of the original artwork and skills I learned at the John C. Campbell Folk School, which will include the new items I have created since my training. The purpose of this arts training was to improve the skills required for woodturning on a lathe and, more specifically, the skills required for turning bowls. These skills precede the expertise required for turning hollow-form vessels and original artwork pieces. This training also allowed me to return to Buffalo State with the skills required to teach woodturning to other students in the wood furniture program.
