E M E R G E N C E
Cazenovia Artisans is proud to present John Volcko’s fine craft of wood-turning. Please join us at the opening reception to meet the artist and see his latest creations.
Meet the artisan and learn about his wood-turning process and the variety of rare and fine woods used in his creations. John describes himself and his approach to the art form as fearless, and the gradual reveal of the piece is his favorite part. He loves working with burls, the wart of a tree. In the featured art piece of the show, Emergence, he uses Brazilian Rosewood burls, the stems turned, steam bent, and copper resin infill used in the voids.
He considers the Brazilian the holy grail of fine woods. Be sure to ask him about the techniques he uses in his creations. They are as fascinating as the artist. You can see his great love for wood and all its beauty in all the descriptions he shares about the art form and its many techniques.
SATURDAY: MARCH 18, 2 - 5 PM
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC**
