According to Joey Richardson:

“Trees are a beautiful world, and wood products allow the designs of nature to live in our homes.

Woodturning uses skills dating back to ancient times as the basis for the production of everyday necessities.

When these skills are taken beyond their utilitarian roots and combined with creativity and imagination, the result transcends craft and rises into the realm of art.”

“Professionally, I am very fortunate to be a woman in what is essentially a man's world - woodturning.

My style combines both more feminine – delicate and beautiful, and more masculine – large and bold.

When combined, these two aspects fully encapsulate the tactile beauty of wood and make the most striking use of it.”
