2017 2nd Place Winner (Sculpture)
Growing up, Tim Niewiadomski's family was always creating one craft or another. His grandfather played a key role in teaching him many things, one of which was basic woodworking skills. He started turning wood in 1998 as a hobby. As he gained confidence and skill, Tim gravitated to segmented turnings to explore and experiment with different woods, colors, and textures. This gives him the opportunity to stretch his imagination and skill, combing precisely cut pieces of different types and colors of wood into one masterpiece after another.
All pieces are of his own design with natural wood colors and textures. No dyes, stains or paints are used to create any piece.
