Todd Hoyer was introduced to wood in his junior high school shop class. He studied manufacturing engineering at Arizona State University and became skilled in casting, welding, and milling. He also joined his mother in learning how to weave and enjoyed the vast differences between working with fabric and metal. Hoyer uses salvaged wood and often burns the surface of his sculptures to distort their natural texture and emphasize the turned form.
