Demonstration: Michael Gibson
Michael Gibson comes to us from nearby Atlanta. He is probably best known for his exquisite and elegant teapots (he is English, after all), but is equally at home with any number of turned sculptural pieces.
He's demoed at all the major AAW symposia and has appeared at events throughout the world, including New Zealand, Turkey, Norway, England, the list goes on. You can learn more at his website, http://www.michaelgibsonwoodturner.com He'll also give a workshop on Sunday, July 21, subject TBD.
The hallmark of is work is his meticulous attention to detail and a profound understanding of form and proportion. Learn from the master and you'll swap your Lipton's for Earl Grey in no time.
