Michael Pedemonte

Michael Pedemonte has been an avid self-taught wood worker for most of his life. He has recently become enamored with using the lathe turning a variety of interesting local woods. Big leaf maple, madrone, ash, smoke bush, etc. – anything that he can mount on the lathe. Each turning is unique, the wood dictates that final outcome. Each piece has its own voice. The thrill is seeing what is ins...ide.

Working in his shop in Gaston, Oregon, Michael explores the possibilities of the different kinds of wood. He enjoys the hunt for unusual materials from both urban and rural sources, winter blow-downs to finds from his local logger friends. He has become a bit of a hoarder with an ever increasing inventory of projects.

Big Leaf Maple Burl Vessel Fine Art by artist Michael Pedemonte - Description: The Burl wood was sourced from a local logging site in the forests of the Oregon Coastal Range by a logger who saw the potential for use of this "junk" wood. I was able to block out a couple of blanks and cure the wood for about 3 years before turning the form seen here. It is always challenging and sometimes rewarding to see what shape comes from the various pieces of wood. This was a joy to turn.
