For brothers Russ and Jason, wood turning is a metaphor for life's beauty, trials, and renewal. They acquired their love for woodworking from their late father who spent much of his free time teaching his boys how to express themselves through art and carpentry.
Their unique style is created through electrical charges finding the path of moisture in the wood thus creating the beautiful lighting like patterns. Sometimes these patterns are left untouched and look like roots, tree limbs or waterways. Sometimes the artists choose to fill the paths left behind with a resin containing phosphorous; when the piece is exposed to daylight these areas filled with resin will glow in the dark or under a fluorescent light.
