Kerry Vesper

"I am intrigued by forms that are asymmetrical and flowing. In each piece I strive to capture the flow and movement of nature that I find in flowing water, desert canyons and mountains."

Kerry Vesper approaches every wood piece he makes as a piece of sculpture. Inspiration comes from his home in the landscapes of the southwest desert. He equates his methods of layering and then shaping wood to the way nature builds up layers of earth and then shapes it with wind and water.

Vesper cuts out layers of plywood and solid woods. He stacks and glues them together to approximate the shape he intends to create. His work is not turned on a lathe. He shapes each piece by hand with carving, grinding and sanding tools and finishes them with a clear tung oil varnish. The color, texture and feel of wood appeals to the artist as does no other medium.
