Native American pottery, primitive to modern, inspires the design of my woodturnings. I am in awe of the beauty and diversity of its clean, simple form and basic decoration. Each piece speaks of the earth and tells the story of its creator. In my opinion, it is the quintessential art form. I try to always use reclaimed wood from naturally fallen branches or trees for my woodturnings. Since the devastating ice storm that struck this area in early 2009, I have not wanted for wood to turn. Most reclaimed wood is damaged by insects, rot, disease or other stress that would have made it fall or have to be removed in the first place. These imperfections in the wood are what I find most fascinating and are what I try to preserve in my turnings. I hope that my creations adequately convey the beauty that I see in wood and Native American art. Thank you for your interest in my work. You can visit my website at http://www.jackkerrart.com
