The Uneducated Woodturner

Who I am is of little account.
For as there are many ‘artists.’
So I am but a shadow amongst shades...

Art endures.

“So what is this twisted, swirling, wile?”
Which in lay-man’s terms are Burl named.
Oft rare, creations of disease or wound.
Each burl a potential gem.
Some rotten to their core... worm eaten... in decay.
But as gems are found in even the ugliest stone...
So the constellations can be wrought within.

Though plain lumber has both beauty and symmetry.
The Burl... unique creation of our Creator.
Ever draws my blade.
