Graham is a woodturner who makes wood art and has been turning wooden articles for over ten years. He says that wood turning involves spinning wood on a lathe and cutting the wood to form various circular shapes. Graham uses a range of forms that wood turning offers such as bowls, platters, spindle items and lidded containers. The recent techniques he has used includes surface embellishing (involving pyrography dyeing and acrylic colouring) and also dissecting turnings then reconstructing them into new shapes.
Graham loves the textural feel, variety of colours and grain patterns that the various wood varieties provide. His interest in turning has constantly changed over the years, from useful craft items such as containers into more ornamental artistic objects.
He is a member of the Koonung Woodturners Guild and has exhibited at the Australian Woodturning Exhibition and at various Melbourne Galleries. He also exhibits at the biannual Alcove Art Shop exhibitions at the Box Hill Community Arts Centre, Box Hill, Victoria.
