This DVDs, created by a skilled, professional TV producer, shows how turned wooden objects, or artefacts, can easily rise to the status of high art. These DVDs are inspirational as distinct from instructional. They don't pretend to be able to tell you "blow by blow", with detailed explanations and processes measurements how to create the objects featured, but what they do tell, with great thoroughness and respect, is what motivates, inspires, drives and even defines the "artists" featured. Here you can see the environment in which these superb turners of international repute live, work and play and they share in words and pictures their influences, development, hopes and ambitions. If you are looking for something beyond all other woodturning video productions, then I would highly recommend these. For the avid woodturner the "Beyond Wood - The Fine Art of Turned and Sculpted Wood" DVD is a real bargain: the set comprises six DVDs and features the work of David Ellsworth, Giles Gilson, Rude Osolnik, Frank E Cummings, Jean-Francois Escoulen, Gianfranco Angelino, Christian Burchard, Hans Weissflog and Ron Kent as well as features on The Emma Lake Event, visits to the Lipton, Bohlen and Wornick collections and a series of exclusive interviews under the title "Perfection in Form". A truly unique insight into the world of woodturning as practised by 'the masters'.
DVDs to help you master and hone your woodturning skills for all levels of woodturners
