Corin’s first experience with wood turning came shortly after high school when he spent a couple of months working with a master turner on the Winchcombe Pottery site in the UK. The experience laid down an appreciation for traditional craft practice.
He went on to a career in studio and commercial furniture, retail design and project management. He returned to turning as a counterpoint to the commercial work he was doing and as a means to engage more directly with his community.
He believes there is something to be said for knowing the provenance of the objects we use, where they came from, how they were made, by who, and how they connect with community. To paraphrase William Morris, everyday objects should give us pleasure as both aesthetic and functional objects.
He currently works out of his studio in Revelstoke turning bowls from reclaimed and salvaged wood.WEBSITE
