Terry's latest book The Creative Woodturner was launched in June 2014.
The Creative Woodturner aims to help turners who want to go beyond simple mastery of technique to develop their own unique style.
2012 | Huon Pine
| 21cm |
3-1/4" h x 8-1/4" dia.
This piece, Impossibowl, was turned from one piece of wood.
The book shows how it was done, step-by-step.
2013 | Queensland Rosewood | 6" h x 2-7/8" w
This was also for a chapter in The Creative Woodturner.
Subverting preconceived notions about what
a lidded box should look like is fun.
2013 | Macassar Ebony | 5-1/4" h x 3" w x 2" d
This piece was made by taking Butterfly Cyclops
several steps further to show how we can challenge
our own preconceptions about what we are making.
2012 | Mallee burl, acrylic paint
| 4-3/4" d x 1.5" h
I made this piece for my book to show how to adapt traditional techniques.
Handled bowls are made by leaving part of the rim proud on two sides. Using the same technique,
this piece was made from one solid piece, but after that you can be as creative as you want.
2013 | Gangabarri
| 10-1/4" l x 3-1/4" w x 2"
This lidded box was also made for my book. I wanted to show how you can use the natural lines
of the wood to make stronger pieces. The curve follows the natural curve of the branch.
Gangabarri is an amazing wood
that grows in my home state of Queensland.
The Eye of the Beholders
2013 | Jacaranda, Jelutong, Acrylic | 10-1/4" x 8-1/2" x 5-1/2"
The art of collaboration is shown in this piece,
all wood, made by Terry Martin and John Morris.
Heart of the Tree
2012 | Jacaranda | 10-1/4" x 1/2"
Sometimes turning is only the first step.
