Rude Osolnik " A Life Turning Wood" Limited Edition w/Presentation Candleholder Signed and Numbered.
Signed Limited Edition Numbered with Candleholder.
A lifetime of turning wood, and striving to perfect the art of turning, has placed Rude Osolnik at the apex of the studio wood turning movement. After 60 years of working, teaching, and inspiring others, Rude has earned his place as one of the elder statesmen of the woodworking world. Now, after decades of continuous work, Rude has taken a brief time out to look back on his long career, to mull over the twists and turns of his remarkable life, and to revisit, photographically, some of the finest examples of his art and craft. Additionally, Rude has committed to words the basics of his wood turning techniques on candleholders, shallow bowls, large bowls, and weed pots. An Osolnik turned object must be seen and felt to be truly appreciated, but this fully illustrated book goes a long way toward communicating both the nuances of Rude's designs and the breadth of his repertoire.
