About Artist Andy Cole

 

In the year 2000 Andy had the opportunity to learn woodturning when he took a basic bowl turning class. He went home with a lathe in his trunk and a passion for turning. Andy joined the Honolulu Woodturner’s club, an affiliate of the American Association of Woodturners. Most recently, he was founder and director of the Honolulu Symposium, a statewide gathering of turners. Andy has lived on the island of Oahu since the 1980’s. He works in a hillside studio, inspired by a spectacular ocean view.

Seeing Beauty in Imperfection

While many turners look for flawless wood to work with, Andy finds great satisfaction in turning flawed pieces of wood into works of art. Bug holes and natural inclusions are not viewed as defects. Rather, he sees them as unique character highlights. Andy explores many directions in wood turning, but one of his specialties is in the organic beauty of natural edge bowls. His trademark works are natural edge nested bowl sets.

Using Rescued Local Wood

All of the wood Andy uses for creating bowls comes from Oahu-grown trees that brought down by either a property owner or strong winds. He rescues the wood for a higher purpose before it can be transported to a land fill. .

Watching Andy demonstrating woodturning at the annual Honolulu Woodturners show at Nohea Gallery is always a treat!
