Artist Bio

Chris Lawrence started his fascination with wood the first day he stepped into wood shop class in high school. After graduating he continued his enjoyment working with wood starting out with a hand me down radial arm saw from the 70’s along with a few hand held power tools and hand tools. In 2011 Chris purchased his first lathe and proceeded to make piles of wood chips until he figured out how to make a usable item. From that point on he was hooked and has been perfecting his craft ever since. Being a member of the Atlantic shore wood turners club and the American association of woodturners has allowed him to share his experience with others along with gaining experience.

Chris currently is focusing on twice turned green wood vessels in a south western pottery style. In between batches of green wood he turns other types of wood turnings from simple pens to complicated segmented pieces to fill his spaces at local hand made shops and art/craft shows. Chris is always experimenting with new techniques. He can be followed on Instagram and Facebook to see his progression through the wonderful world of wood turning.
