“My artwork is made using very unusual, rare, exotic burls or reclaimed near extinct woods. I incorporate classical shapes, inlays, tints, scrolled sculptural designs, and the natural inclusions and formations of the wood. I combine this with my lifelong passion for natural elements from caves and mines around the world. Each vessel is one of a kind. They are finished with a high gloss lacquer.”
Steven Potts is an artist residing in Chattahoochee Hills, a city near metro Atlanta, Georgia. He started turning wood about fourteen-years-ago, after being inspired by a local artist he discovered on one of his many trips to the North Georgia Mountains. He watched the artist turn for nearly half that day. Afterward, he ran home and bought a lathe from a local store and the rest is history. Steven’s sculptures have evolved into a true talent in the area of woodturning.
