Dewey Garrett

"I make things in order to see, touch, and share the things I see but dimly with my mind's eye."

Educated in engineering, Dewey Garrett took up the lathe in order to develop general woodworking skills for cabinetry and furniture. He found the process so stimulating and challenging that woodturning became a dedicated pursuit. Garrett's work is a continuing exploration of the structure of forms constrained by the symmetry and simplicity imparted by the mechanics of a lathe.
