Dan Tilden: Artist Statement
Fine woodworking is my passion. Using the natural features from the tree, I turn hollow vessels, pots, and bowls on a wood lathe to create an elegant shape while keeping the piece in the most natural state possible. Using a natural edge opening, drying wet wood to warp and move, and using a knot or void in the shape adds character to the piece and lets the piece "speak for itself". What some woodworkers may consider a flaw in the wood, I use to my advantage.
