Rick Sollie

A lifelong love affair with wood has led me to the work I currently focus on.  Most of my pieces start on the turning lathe and are further enhanced with embellishments which can include carving, pyrography, inlays of various materials such as crushed turquoise or glass, airbrushed designs and colorations with analine dyes or acrylics.  Each piece is unique and I attempt to make each work an expression of a perceived vision which can be accomplished within the limits imposed by a particular ‘chunk’ of wood.
