Saturn Box Hot Off the Lathe

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

Some More Things to Pack for Pittsburgh
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.

Lynn, I'm lost for words. Thank you for that great compliment.
I guess it's a form of obsession.

Behind the Scenes Making of the "Life's Work" Series

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.

'Ladybug' - Video Profile of Elizabeth Goluch, Metal Artist

Once again +Ben Proudfoot 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.

Still a few places left on the Course "Turned and Sculpted Boxes"

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:

CENTER FOR FURNITURE CRAFTSMANSHIP - Rockport, Maine: WOODWORKING CLASSES IN MAINE Our woodworking school offers courses in furniture making and related skills such as carving, turning, marquetry and finishing.

Lost Orchard Found - 8 Photos in Album

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 Lost Orchard

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.

I agree with you +Karen Cooper​.
There is no evidence that an orchard once existed there, it has been replaced with yet more gmo corn, the last thing the world needs!

Mother Earth - Third Voice in the Conversations with Makers Series

Breakwater Studios has profiled artist Louise Pentz in this third release in the series. +Ben Proudfoot 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!

Amazing - again beautifully made and inspiring, but I found this one so much more powerful. Louise's commitment to using her immense skill and experience to give voice to the voiceless was amazing and how that seems to have invigorated her and given her new purpose is just brilliant.

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.
