Mastering Form and Design

July 28, 2019 – August 3, 2019

Jacques Vesery

Technique is often a distraction to the importance of good form. In this workshop students learn about design elements including scale, form, balance and proportion, along with the golden mean and the geometry of design. You will visualize these through the turning process. Participants will also discover how to critique, evolve, and learn from the experience. Methods to create better form can be a difficult step in evolving your work to the next level. Open to all skill levels.


Jacques Vesery is an artist/sculptor from Damariscotta, Maine. He is a former Maine Arts Commission Fellow and received the title of Master Craft Artist from the Maine Crafts Association in 2011. He has lectured at the Journees Mondiales du Tournage D’art Sur Bois Congres, Loughborough University, London, Anderson Ranch, Aha Hana Lima-Hawaii and at World Wood Day in Turkey.
