Auction Description

2021 Smithsonian Craft Show - Gordon Browning by Gordon Browning
I have been making lathe-turned, blind-hollowed vessels since 2001. Each piece is turned from a single log section—one piece, no segments. I favor full-bodied, parabolic curves, a small base, and a respect for the grain that suggests the log beneath. Hold a piece sideways, rock it, the change in angle should catch your breath. Vessel walls are uniformly thin for lightness and balance, and the hole at the top is finger-tip small. The finish--tung oil or beeswax--preserves the wood's natural look and invites touch. Read more
