Please join us on Tuesday June 6, 2017 for an exciting presentation by Mark Knize. Mark Knize is an artist/craftsman making work full time since 2008.  He’ll show photos of some of his work over the last 20 years ranging from carved figures to turned jewelry.  Lately he's been doing more production work and will show some of the time-saving methods he's using and tell the things he’s learned about production.

Mark's Biography: Mark Knize is a sculptor in wood, clay, metal, concrete, and stone.

The geometry of simple curves and round objects has been a decades-long interest producing work ranging from jewelry to outdoor sculptures. He now is adding more representational images to his body of work including people and animals, a consequence of serious study of figure drawing. Besides winning awards in local art shows and publishing woodturning technique articles, his work is also in private collections in California, Europe, and Japan.

Some additional links to Mark's work:
