Artist's Note

"My goal here was to develop a technique that was highly non-symmetrical, allowed for a concave surface (notice the narrow face is concave), and allowed for subtle spirals."

About Bill Ooms

Bill Ooms was raised on a farm south of Chicago, and wood has always been a part of Bill's life. As a second generation woodturner, he learned basic woodworking techniques from his father. Even as a young man, his desire was to envision and create new things. This led him to his first career in engineering, and in 2002 he returned to his roots as a full time woodworker. Much of Bill's early wood work was turning hollow vases inspired by the pottery of Native Americans in the Southwest. Later, he combined his wood-turning skills with his math and engineering background to create unique wood sculptures. Most recently, Bill has designed and built a complex and unique ornamental lathe to create highly decorated objects of wood art. Bill and his wife, Pam, have their home and studio in the country north of Prescott, Arizona.
