Masters of Contemporary Wood Art

Casual Friday was selected to be published in the 3rd volume of the Masters of Contemporary Wood Art catalog in November. This catalog presents an overview of what is currently going on in the world of contemporary wood art by bringing together works of ninety-four internationally recognized masters of wood art from around the world. Proud to be part of this, as I admire many of the artists involved.
