~ Steve O'Bryan: "I live in Boulder, CO, a place in which natural beauty is easy to find every day, every season, from every direction. To walk in this natural beauty is an easy path.
For me, photography follows from that beauty: Light filtering through my mind’s eye from the 360-degree multi-sensory surround. I’m interested in blending my contact with these elements into the human estimate of color and form."
~ Steve Helfant is a high school English teacher who turns wood into art in his garage in Highlands Ranch, CO, using local beetle kill pine, juniper, box elder, cottonwood, maple, and others.
Woodturning is different from most woodworking techniques,
since there is no measuring, no angles, and no straight lines.
You simply mount a piece of wood on the lathe, spin it at high speed, and carve the wood as it spins. It's closer to a potter’s wheel than a tablesaw and no two pieces are every truly alike.
