Ralph Watts Guest at Studio #1 8705 Rio Grande Blvd. NW
In keeping with the Zen traditions of simplicity, focus, and calm abiding, my work is aimed at trying to achieve those goals in every line and curve of the turning or sculpture. Knots, crotches, and twisted grain are prized and incorporated to best blend with the whole and sometimes to emphasize an interesting grain pattern, spalting, or maybe a flaw like a knothole. Almost every day joy is found in creating unique work with the hope someone else finds it attractive and wants it for their very own.
