Opening reception 2 - 6 pm on Sunday, June 12th


A Deer Isle native and self-taught wood turner, Chris Joyce's wooden works are a melding of fascinating design and expert craftsmanship.

"Wood is the medium that has always held my fascination--ever since childhood when I would save scraps from my dad's carpentry jobs to make little wooden boats. Now I spend whatever precious hours I can turning wood in my shop. The woods I use come from my backyard and the world all over. I love to find a new species and to learn all of its character through the process of creating a turned container. I hope the viewer of these works gets to experience a little of each piece of the wood's unique nature."
