Terry Widner's Profile
I enjoy exploring the creative process within the constraints of the wooden spoon. ...and sometimes, outside of those constraints.
I love the creative process, of not knowing what is to come about.... but still having a hand in it. I am intrigued with those moments when I become aware of that third 'something' that takes over the work and I seem to be mostly a spectator.
Not a single spoon (or other creation) I've made turned out the way I wanted or intended. Never happens! The work itself seems to take off in a different direction and I just try to follow. And it is that 'not knowing', that 'evolving' of the piece that keeps me going back to the shop.
From time to time I experiment with other materials, but wood keeps drawing me back…
