Burls: Their biology and beauty
N6273 Depot Rd., Green Lake
Local artisan, Ben Rowley, will share the biology of burls – an abnormal growth that occurs on some trees – and the unique art that is created from these abnormalities. Ben will discuss the formation of burlwood, clarify standard misconceptions of its biology and practical use, compare with other figured woods, and discuss forestry ethics. Examples of rough timber to finished works will be present and also discussed. Enjoy this event at no cost! Participants should meet at Rowley’s workshop, N6273 Depot Rd., Green Lake.
