Originally conceived in 1999 and winner of the Festival of the Arts Award by the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council in that year, the Saturn box remains one of my favourites. This is the first one I have made for a while, and the first on the Robust Lathe.
This piece is made from African blackwood and is approximately 3" high and 3" in diameter. And of course it is a box! All my boxes can be purchased from my online 'Small Box Store' on my website: http://www.stevenkennard.com
But what are they? (not boxes)
Just getting things ready to pack to take with me for the American Association of Woodturners Symposium. Here are a couple of pieces.. Wondering what they are? If you are attending the symposium make sure to sit in on my rotations on Friday afternoon or Sunday morning to find out. If you can't be there, I'll let you know afterwards!
I've almost got everything together and am really looking forward to the weekend. See you there if you are going.
For tonight's program of special big screen viewing of the Life's Work : Conversations with Makers series (in Halifax, Nova Scotia) Breakwater Studios has produced a short behind the scenes featurette. I am looking forward to seeing the series on the big screen and meeting up with the film maker and other craftspeople tonight.
Enjoy this short film.
Once again of Breakwater Studios has done a superb job of profiling this gifted artist. Another video well worth watching!
I have worked with Elizabeth for many years, most notably (and enjoyably) in producing our collaborative piece "Medusa" (Photographs here https://plus.google.com/+StevenKennard/posts/gGo6ttSLZHU ) and am a great admirer of this artist and her work.

Thanks a lot to Jon Binzen for the lovely writeup!
I'm really looking forward to teaching a class in turned and sculpted boxes at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine, September 7-11 this year. It's my third time back and I always enjoy it. It's a beautiful part of the country and the school has just built a brand new woodturning studio (for me?). It's beautifully equiped with lots of Oneway lathes. It's a dream environment, a 'must go to' destination to come and learn about makng beautiful boxes. It's a lovely time of the year, too.
Still a few places left, so check it out here:
Some of my new work which will be accompanying me to the American Association of Woodturners Annual Symposium in Pittsburgh Penn. this coming week. I'm looking forward to seeing old and new friends there and giving my demonstrations. If you will be attending, please come up and say hi to me.

This is an album of pictures of the orchard that inspired the making of the "Lost Orchard" box, which is described in the video about my work. I was asked to show some of the trees from that orchard before it was cut down. I thought I should make a collection to represent these beautiful lost trees. There are 8 photographs you can scroll through from the Lightbox.
The video is here: https://vimeo.com/126545288
The Lost Orchard box is pictured along with some of my other work here: https://plus.google.com/+StevenKennard/posts/7Yt1LqrFbFU
The release of the Vimeo profile video about me ( https://vimeo.com/126545288 ) has prompted requests to show some of the photography of the actual lost orchard. Here is my posting and an image I took in the fog, of one of the wonderful old trees in that beautiful orchard. I have taken others and will try to post more soon.
Breakwater Studios has profiled artist Louise Pentz in this third release in the series. has once again done a sensitive and masterful job at enabling this wonderful artist to tell her story. Just look at the faces on those figures!

Terrific job everyone. It is a beautiful profile video, that's for sure. It is featured on the Collectors of Wood Art of America site as well as the American Association of Woodturners site.
It was tweeted by and was on some pretty major sites apart from the specialist ones mentioned above.
