John Berglund is a master woodturner residing in rural St. Cloud, Minnesota. He is delighted to present the following pages for you to look at. John turns bowls, flower vases, and spinning tops both for aesthetic viewing and also anticipating their functionality in the home.
In the past seventeen years, my goal as I create each individualistic lathe-turned form, is to maximize the beauty of the form to the beauty of the materials being used. Utilizing sawn lumber, unusually grained burls, and logs straight out of the woods, I blend together classic traditional lines with designs of my own invention to present an aesthetically pleasing form. In addition, each piece is a study in the relationship of positive and negative space; for the space surrounding each piece is as equally important to the piece's statement and visual impact, as is the form that I have chosen to remain.
