AAW Presents: Eric Lofstrom
Namaste Bowls

Saturday, May 22, 2021   
3:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Join us online for an inspiring afternoon with the extraordinary Eric Lofstrom, whose current woodturning work represents curiosities relating to water, energy, and the human spirit.

In this demonstration, you’ll learn the techniques Eric uses to create the endgrain bowls of his Namaste series. These bowls are artistic pieces, intentionally designed to welcome interaction between the viewer and vessel.

  • Emphasis will be on artistic inspiration, tool control, and sharpening techniques, techniques specific to turning endgrain, and discussion of the "optically resonant" form.

  • Eric will also share simple, yet elegant coloring and texturing embellishments which can be used to add depth and drama to any captivatingly simple form.

After this demo, you’ll see small blocks of wood as potential pieces of art, and the use of color and texture as a way to amplify your creative voice!
