Meet the artist
Wind, fire and water
Woven through all of Neil Turner’s artwork is a deep respect for the material and the natural forces that have acted upon it. He looks for the quiet ripples eroded in soil by wind, the delicate eddies left by water, and the swirling lick of flames.
Neil works in negative, observing the subtle interplay of light and shadow and creating fluid forms from solid wood.
He primarily uses Australian timbers and works in a highly sympathetic way with the material, the natural features of the timber informing the finished piece.
Workshops & Demonstrations
Neil enjoys sharing the knowledge he has gained over a lifetime of woodturning.
He has been invited to demonstrate his skills at schools and associations both locally and internationally.
