The Story of a Storyteller:
Terry Martin
in Profile
by Joshua Friend

Excerpt:
A love of trees

The story of Terry’s work as a woodturner begins with his love of trees. His 1996 book, Wood Dreaming (Harper Collins), offers not only an account of woodturning in Australia, but reflects an appreciation by turners, craftspeople, and aborigines alike of the splendid raw material of trees. Perhaps because Australia is resplendent with unique and interesting timbers, often with stunning grain, Terry has enjoyed a life-long love affair with them. He writes, "The trees of Australia have evolved in perfect response to the unique conditions of their land. Some have survived for inconceivably long periods—living memorials of ancient continents and primeval eras."
