Ken Lindgren, Woodturning: Bowls and Beyond

Ken Lindgren

<p>Ken Lindgren was a 35-year chemical engineer and now a professional, full-time woodturner and woodturning teacher since 2003. No living tree is touched to make his work - only trees from the Horizontal Forest are used: trees fallen due to natural death, storm damage or construction. Distressed wood, color, abstract forms, burning, texturing, knots, cracks, voids, and insect holes, are all used in a multitude of ways to create his work. Even functional pieces have some degree of artistic expression. He&rsquo;s taken formal classes from world renowned turners Betty Scarpino, Michael Hosaluk, Jacques Vesary, Graeme Priddle and the late Binh Pho. Ken has attended numerous symposiums at national and local levels. He teaches at several different venues in Massachusetts.</p>
