Val Moker and Dale Lowe - Spectrum: Color and Texture
Val MokerVal Moker grew up on a farm and sought every occasion after the work was done, to take solitary walks and seize the ravishing beauty of nature. Weekly trips to the city would allow her a break away from the toils of the country, granting her the privilege of observing people in a variety of settings, and imagining the different backgrounds and cultures that brought these common folk to today’s place. This longing to explore humanity continues to stimulate her creative palette.

Having started working on Intarsia a few years ago, I concentrated on both the technical aspects of finely fitted pieces with very tight tolerances and choosing wood with colors that would compliment the entire piece. I am continually amazed by the magic of the grain patterns in the wood as the pieces are shaped and finished. After discovering some birch burls in our boreal forest I knew immediately that I needed to try woodturning. What stated as an adventure has evolved into a passion and the wood never fails to amaze me. As each piece takes its shape and allows its grain to be revealed we see the gift.
