Joel Hunnicutt's work goes beyond traditional woodturning. This artist crafts gracefully shaped vessels that recreate the free-flowing feeling of glass in wood. His bold colors paired with classic forms offer a delightful surprise for the senses. The play of light through open segments in many of his pieces makes for a fascinating display in any room.
Hunnicutt is a self-taught wood artist who uses "segmented" construction as a primary design tool. This process involves the precise cutting of many small pieces of wood, often three or more species, and then assembling them into a rough form, which then is turned to shape on a wood lathe. This technique enables Hunnicutt to design shapes that would be extremely difficult or impossible to create from solid wood.
Hunnicutt typically finishes his pieces in lacquer. Often he uses dyes and inks to transform these turned shapes into a rainbow of color.
