C’ville Arts Features - “Taking heart, adding soul, and “turning it” into a dream”

The talented and nationally recognized wood turner, Mike Sorge,

will be our featured artist in April at C-ville Arts. He will be at the gallery to meet you and share his collection during the

First Friday Event on April 7th, 2017, from 6 to 8 p.m.

In 2009, Mike realized his passion to rescue, reveal and preserve the inherent

natural beauty hidden in the life filled timber of the fallen tree through the

art of woodturning to be both honorable and exhilarating.

Primarily self taught, with a goal of sculpting uniquely original work through extensive
experimentation, Mike discovered approaches in presenting the bowl gauge to
non-round forms resulting in distinctive art and utilitarian items.
Mike’s geometric sculpted Vases, Bowls, Boxes and Platters feature flared tips
and flowing, undulating curves. Mike’s rustic, yet elegant “Natural Edge
Winged Vases” feature extensive balanced high and low bark with curved upper
wings, displaying the fullness of the life of the tree it came from. With
the odd shaped burls, Mike envisions and sculpts timeless shapes that maximize
the fullness and beauty of each burl. And Mike’s efforts with the
traditional round shape produce uniquely dimensional signature art and
utilitarian forms in an attractive variety of sizes and design .
