“Woodturning, in contrast to other art, is essentially a subtractive process. One carefully turns away material inside and out until a pleasing form emerges. Only then might other woods, resins, inlays, and burnt-in designs be added.”
Ted is currently inlaying with brass, copper, turquoise, and semi-precious stones and uses a variety of woods: Texas Mesquite, Curley Maple, Ambrosia Burls, Texas Pecan, and Elm. This year he is trying to make lemonade from lemons and features works of wood saved after the 2019 Dallas tornadoes. Ted has exhibited in the tour for several years and has been included in the 2018 Northhaven Gardens Gallery. Ted shares the web site Carolyn Rekerdres.com with his artist-wife.
