Herman de Vries, Winnipeg, MB: Wood
Venue Section: Eckhardt Hall/Main Floor
Woodturning is a labour of love for me that began out of necessity. In need of a desk and unable to afford to buy one, I built one using simple hand tools. That desk started a lifetime of working with wood. I want people to feel like they can touch the work and feel the warmth of the wood, knowing one of my pieces is bringing them a moment of pleasure.
