Luce Artist Biography

Addie Draper learned the technique of "segmented turning" during the 1980s. She constructs the initial form from small blocks of wood and often incorporates many different wood types into one piece. Draper juxtaposes natural patterns and colors around her objects to create a graphic surface that complements the smooth form.
