Artist's statement: “Lidded containers have fascinated me since I was a child hiding my secret treasures; today they are my most creatively stimulating body of work. I like to decorate the inside of my containers. When the lid is opened a hidden treasure is revealed, a secret shared with the person who opens it.”

About the artist: Cindy Drozda, Boulder Colorado, has worked with wood since age 7, when she built a playhouse out of orange crates and re-used nails (with a little of her father’s help). At 19, she learned professional
woodworking on the job at a player piano factory. She is currently a full-time wood artist and has been turning since 1985.

Cindy’s elegant lidded vessels with delicate finials choreograph pure classic form with the natural grain patterns in the wood, creating a sculpture with elegant presence and lively personality. Her work
can be seen at the finest juried shows, galleries, and exhibitions in the USA, as well as published in several books.

Cindy shares her woodturning knowledge and passion as an international demonstrator, teacher, writer, and producer of instructional DVDs. She has been invited to teach at symposia and clubs around the world and across the US. She is a member of the American Association of Woodturners, the American Craft Council, and four AAW chapters.

Before choosing woodturning as a career Cindy worked as a cabinet maker, rebuilt airplanes, and made hang gliding equipment. In 1988, she participated in a 6 month long crossing of the entire US by non-powered hang glider.
