Press Release Mark Gardner

Western North Carolina woodworker, Mark Gardner will demonstrate bowl turning and large scale sculptural carving using chainsaws, grinders, and hand tools as well as discuss his personal experiences as a professional craftsman from 12 a.m. to 4 p.m. , April 18th, in Western Piedmont Community College’s Professional Crafts: Wood Studio, room J-20. Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Gardner was introduced to woodworking as a young child and by sixteen enrolled in a furniture making class at the University of Cincinnati. Gardner began wood turning in high school and after years of struggle, received a strong foundation under the tutelage of John Jordan at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. “Furniture making is a slow process, and the immediacy of turning was very attractive to me” said Gardner.

Gardner’s lathe work is based on the fundamental concept that the lathe is a tool for carving as opposed to a tool only used to make symmetrical objects. Over the years, his methods shifted from purely straight forward lathe work to adding direct methods such as chainsaws, power planers and grinders. Gardner credits the fast pace lathe and power tools to his ability to work fast and allow ideas to develop quickly. Gardner’s work is inspired by Oceanic and African art. He works primarily in green wood and compares picking the perfect piece of wood similar to using found objects to make sculpture. “I may have an idea for a piece and have to let it sit in a sketchbook until the right piece of wood appears. In other cases, a piece of wood, its size and proportions, may suggest a particular approach to me and send me off in a whole new direction.”

Gardner teaches workshops at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Tennessee, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Colorado, Penland School of Crafts and John C Campbell Folk School, North Carolina. His work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and is part of several permanent collections including the Museum of Fine Art, Houston Texas, Art Museum of Art and Design, New York, New York, and the Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton Maine.

On Friday, April 18th, examples will begin his workshop with a presentation in the College’s Moore Hall Auditorium beginning at 12:00. Carving demonstrations will follow in Western Piedmont Community College’s Professional Crafts: Wood Studio, room J-20 from 1:00-4:00 P.M. The event is open and free to the public. To view more of Gardner’s work, you may visit For more information about this event and woodworking classes, contact Professional Crafts Coordinator, Courtney Long, 828-448-3552.
