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."
