Luce Center Quote
"A slight change can have a dramatic effect." Stoney Lamar, Woodshop News, 1993
Luce Center Label
Stoney Lamar uses the technique of multiaxial turning. He places the wood on the lathe to be turned, then repositions it at a different angle to be turned again. This allows Lamar to carve from multiple directions, and his sculptures reveal a myriad of faces to the viewer.
