Barry Lundgren Artists’ Biography
“I have been working with wood for 30 years and have been woodturning for over 20 years. I’m basically self-taught, but have been fortunate enough to have have taken classes from some of the world’s best woodturners; David Ellsworth, Stuart Batty, and Betty Scarpino.
My inspiration comes from the wood itself. Every piece is different in color, texture, scent, and character. Some pieces are turned green and I find it fascinating how they warp and distort into finished pieces. Other pieces, such as lidded boxes, threaded urns, and salad bowls have to be rough-turned and left to dry and stabilize. They are then remounted and turned to finish their shape, and will actually dry and stay symmetrical.
The shape of the pieces are equally as important as the wood. Whether they are the classical shapes from the past or the natural-edge pieces that warp into their own shape, my goal is to make them all pleasing to the eye and touch.”
