Jim Holzschuh

The wood I use is collected from various sources including “downed” trees here in Vermont felled by wind, storm and even beavers. Most pieces are roughed out from their original state using a chain saw. They are then shaped further using a band saw. I use wood gouges to create the different types of pieces from plates, platters, bowls, boxes, bracelets, and vases. In conjunction with the Angora goats that my wife and I raise, I also create drop spindles, nostepindes, wrist distaffs, shawl pins, and other items for fiber artists.

I feel that the beauty of the wood should stand on its own and not be overly painted, carved or embellished. The grain, the defects, the insect damage and the spalting are all part of the character revealed when the wood is turned. I hope you enjoy the items I create as much as I enjoy discovering the “beauty under the bark”.
