Meet Bob Gunther, the founder/artist of Fine Wood Artistry.
I've spent a long time contemplating what type of artist I am, what my artistic vision is, how my philosophy is embodied by my work. Turns out I'm a perfectionist and I enjoy making beautiful objects that you can treasure for a lifetime. I begin by looking at a piece of wood, noting its colour and grain, its texture, its uniqueness. I turn it in my hands, watching how the light changes the wood's character and contemplating what function might suit it best - an object of adornment, of decoration, of purpose.
