B rad Moss’s wood art is recognised internationally, and has been snapped up by the likes of Bill Clinton (don’t hold it against Brad!) and Pope John Paul II.
A lot of the traditional wood turners will turn a specific article and then stay with that and not move on. I think the wood turners need to branch out and challenge themselves a bit more. Challenge what they do and hopefully break new grounds and start producing a bit more variety.Draw inspiration from what is around you. And most importantly turn, with an absence of fear.
Don’t buy woodworking books – go to the pottery books, the ancient glassblowers, the classical forms. Draw inspiration from what is around you. And most importantly turn, with an absence of fear.
Brad makes his own tools, to create his unique works. He says you are only restricted by the capability of your tools and your imagination.
‘I have been turning fulltime since 1985, during this time he has drawn inspiration for shapes and designs from the potters of Japan and the native American Indians. I transfer these principals into contemporary design through the medium of wood. I like the visual effects and the tactile response of textures on my wood art, but also smooth finishes which enhance the beautiful grains of timber.’Shop for Brad Moss Products
