Book Description

7 Mar 2013
Legendary woodturner Stephen Hogbin's work has been groundbreaking at every turn. He first burst on the scene in the early 1970s with an exhibition of turnings unlike anything seen before-cut apart, re-assembled, enhanced by carving, and bearing little resemblance to the standard round stuff that had previously characterized the lathe. Now, the internationally recognised designer examines eleven of his finest and most innovative creations, distilling each piece to a useful project any woodturner can replicate. This is the first time Hogbin has described his techniques and presented his ideas in step-by-step project format. All of these projects begin with the lathe, but each features inventive cutting into the turned elements and recombining the pieces to make entirely new forms. They do not require advanced technical skills, but will encourage you to break out of the basic vocabulary of woodturning and see marvellous new possibilities.

About the Author

Stephen Hogbin, while remaining embedded in his own region of Owen Sound is recognized internationally by collectors, educators and professional organizations for his influence in studio wood turning and furniture making. In the early 1970s, he developed a rich vocabulary of alternate forms to the 1000-year-old technique of lathe work. These innovative forms became a keystone to the development of the contemporary domain. Primarily a studio artist with an inclusive and multi discipline approach, he is also an occasional curator and author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hogbin is brilliant!!! 22 Sep 2013
By Michael Mocho - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So glad Stephen finally wrote this book! It is wonderful to see more details about the building process and clever adaptations that he uses in service to form. However, it is not just the technical solutions that make the book valuable, it is the underlying attitude of curiosity and demonstrated ability to approach an idea from many different angles that is so refreshing and stimulating. His humor, humility, and great humanity shine through as well in the writing, and he has a rare gift for articulating intention in the object without pretense. His wit and insight are as formidable as those of his teacher -David Pye, and he has greatly expanded the sense of possibility for us all. His work has been an important inspiration to a generation of makers, and it's a real delight to learn more about his approach. BRAVO!
