Turned sculptures from Idaho, United States

Posted By on January 3, 2010

These gorgeous sculptures are made by Sterling Sanders who is a resident of  Bonner County, Sandpoint, Idaho.
He was born in Utah, which was home until he retired.

He says:

” Most design elements come from observing nature. Hand tools, power grinders, and the lathe help in creating my sculptures.”

For sculpture “Species” he got inspiration from a photo in the book, “Art Forms In Nature”.
It depicts a type of marine Protozoa as it moves through the ocean.

He started from a log of apricot wood

and turned and carved it to this beautiful sculpture:


" Species "

And here are some more of his creations:
