Stoney Lamar, Red, 1990, box elder, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of George Peter Lamb and Lucy Scardino in memory of Natalie Rust Lamb, 1995.100.16
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.
