Stuart Mortimer

Stuart was born in 1942 and educated in Aberdeenshire in Scotland; he spent his "working life" in the police force and now lives in Hampshire. He has been turning since 1968 and is self-taught; he has won many awards for his work and has built up an international reputation. He is highly regarded by his peers and collectors alike, he writes, teaches and demonstrates throughout the world. He is particularly well known for his signature spiral work, which is hand crafted on and off the lathe using hand held power tools as well as traditional carving tools. He started the spiral work in the early 1980's to decorate a wide range of work. He is also the holder of the world record for the largest bowl ever turned. Stuart uses other decorating techniques to enhance his work,including burning, carving, ebonising and piercing. He is now adding silver and gold to his work, the twisted finials, beads and other forms of embellishment are being hand cut from solid metal.
Je suis vraiment admirative de ces créations......

Ce sont des objets qui ne passent pas inaperçus. Ni même par les aveugles! Élégants et expressifs.

Accolades! Verts et jaunes. De la couleur du Brésil!

Ce sont de très belles oeuvres, mais elles ne m'émeuvent pas comme d'autres que tu as montrées, les théières par exemple ...
Peut-être trop sages pour moi? (:-))))
