Wood turning and stone sculpting are reductive processes yielding three-dimensional art. Both topics will be discussed at the WCART October meeting featuring Hal Murray. Anyone can be shown how to take a piece of wood and, with the use of a lathe, turn a bowl. Taking a fallen tree and turning it into a vessel which, metaphorically represents something well known but would take hundreds of words to describe, is the greater calling.
With the aid of numerous pieces, Hal will present and describe: how wooden vessels are made on a lathe, aspects of a quality wooden vessel, and present a philosophy that vessels can be metaphors for you.
The meeting will be held at 7:00 PM, Thursday, October 12th in the Oxford Township Municipal building, 11 Green Street, Oxford, NJ 07863. The public is welcome. Refreshments will be served. There will be a $2 fee for non-members wishing to participate.
Funding has been made possible, in part, by the Warren County Cultural and Heritage Commission.
