Robert Chatelain

Robert Chatelain has been working with wood for more than 40 years. He has developed a wonderful series of turned vessels. His turned burls reveal voids in what might otherwise be a vase-like shape. Bob then fills in the voids with epoxy and gold and other leaf to re-create the shape that would have been. This is hand burnished and results in a magical-looking vessel showing both the exceptional wood grain and the colorful additions.
