Meet Woodturner Rich DeTrano this Sunday, Nov. 10th at The MINT. If you missed visiting his studio during Open Studio Weekend, you have a second chance. Rich is known for his hollow wooden vessels. He will be visiting The MINT to talk about his career as a woodturner, showing and talking about some of the pieces he has made, and giving a bowl turning demonstration. This is a free MEMBERS ONLY event.


Woodworking has been my profession since 1981. I use found local wood, trees that have been removed by others, as the source of my materials. I attempt to highlight the natural features of the wood including its imperfections and peculiarities. It is the uniformity of the annual rings, the irregularities of a burl's grain pattern and bark inclusions that are the true beauty of my work. My intention is to create a form that will allow nature's beauty to be seen and enjoyed. My work was selected by the Pinellas County Arts Council as a gift for the Vice President Al Gore in 1996.


Just one of his many creations. Check out the gallery on his website http://www.richdetranowoodturner.com
