Turned vessel from Australia

Posted By on May 26, 2010

Jack de VosThese turned and sculptured wooden vessels are made by Jack de Vos from Wungong, Western Australia.

He was born in Holland and migrated, with his family, to Australia when he was ten years old.
Since then, he lived in the Perth area, Western Australia.
In 1993 he took up wood-turning full time.

Today woodturning is still his passion and he is constantly developing new techniques, designs and ideas, which he readily shares through his popular demonstrations, teaching sessions and seminars both locally and overseas.

Artist’s statement:

“I have an acute awareness that the wood, and the trees it comes from, as well as the talent one has to craft fine pieces, are God given. In my artistic pieces I aim to reflect my appreciation for the majestic beauty of God’s creation, as a result most of my artistic pieces are inspired by nature.”
