BOB CARLS: WOODTURNING STUDIO

FINELY-CRAFTED WOOD VESSELS

Bob Carls creates functional and decorative lathe-turned wood vessels using traditional and contemporary woodworking processes, both on and off the lathe. His new work uses lamination and segmenting to take advantage of the graphic qualities of the process and the organic quality of the wood.

“My work focuses on function or implied function and draws from my personal experience and value system, striving for continuity, historical context and a high level of workmanship.”
