Luce Artist Biography

Hilliard Booth studied ancient and medieval history as a graduate student. He began turning wood while working in a cabinet shop in South Carolina and tried to replicate the perfection and grace of classical Roman and Greek forms. The precise, carved bands of pattern on Booths vessels highlight the natural grain and carry the viewer's eye around their curved contours.
