17 days until the show!

Vicki McClain and Judy Chestnut

Vicki's interest in art, nature, and her love for animals have drawn her to explore many art forms and media such as Scrimshaw, Beading, Pine Needle baskets and her new obsession Pyrography, also known as woodburning. She has done several collaborative pieces with Judy Chesnut to embellish her turned wood pieces and in the process became interested in Pyrography. Judy acquired an interest in wood at an early age while helping her dad build their house. Her first exposure to a lathe, was while I was attending classes at the Kansas City Art Institute and building furniture. Judy collects and use many exotic woods from a variety of countries. The more unusual the wood, the more attracted she isto it. It’s a bit of an obsession as is the woodturning. Judy and Vicki's love of wood and nature is expressed in all their work.
