William Broderson

William Broderson specializes in wood-turned bowls, vessels, vases and boxes.He refers to these as “Art from Nature”.His creations begin with the selection of high value, quality wood. Wood used for his work is often highly figured, rare or exotic.Prior to turning, it is carefully looked over to identify the best features that will add artistic character to the piece. One of his special techniques is the use of inlaid semi-precious stones , complimentary woods and color highlights with texturing to make his work unique. Large pieces of turquoise, white buffalo and other stones give the artistic pieces an individual quality that cannot be duplicated as no two stones or blocks of wood are the same. William finds South West Indian pottery and Indian art not only pleasing to the eye and inspirational, but functional as well. He has patterned his “Art from Nature” on the same principal. Working from his studio in Nevada, he continues to innovate and hone his craft with each new piece
