HIDDEN PATTERNS - woodturnings by Gene Presson

On display until November 21, 2017

Woodturner Gene Presson describes this exhibit: “One of the reasons I enjoy woodturning so much is the pleasure of finding the patterns that are hidden within every piece of wood. Patterns that are different in each and every piece that I mount on my lathe. Patterns that are different if I change the mounting point by as little as an eighth of an inch.”
