Gallery Talk with Walter Balliet and Albert LeCoff

On Saturday, April 9th from 2-4 pm, visit the Wood Turning Center for a Gallery Talk with Walter Balliet and Albert LeCoff.

"This exquisite exhibition from the Center's museum collection includes wood objects finely decorated via metal cutters fastened to historic ornamental lathes. The objects, recently donated to the Center by retired tool and die maker and ornamental turner Walter Balliet, of New Jersey, reflect decades of meticulous experimentation and collaboration by Balliet and friends."

"In addition, our Museum Collection; Library space will be highlighting works from the museum collection showcasing ornamental turnings by: Walter Balliet; Dale Chase; Gorst duPlessis; John Edwards; Dewey Garrett; Frank Knox; Dean Malcom; Joshua Salesin; and Jon Sauer."

I had the pleasure of videotaping Walter Balliet and Albert LeCoff talking about ornamental wood turning at Balliet's workshop in NJ. You can be sure it will be an interesting conversation. Visit the online gallery for details and images.
