This spalted hickory bowl by Tennessee woodworker Jim Madden makes a beautiful, artistic centerpiece.
The majority of Jim’s work is created from salvaged wood from construction sites or fallen trees. “It’s wonderful to make something functional and beautiful out of wood that might otherwise have been dumped in a landfill or burned.” Jim looks for wood with character – an interesting shape, grain pattern or color striations (spalting). “Making use of whatever character the wood may have allows me to enhance the beauty of the finished piece.” This is a key characteristic of Jim’s work that helps create the individuality of each piece.
Jim is an active member of the Chattanooga chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. He has continued to hone his skills at John C. Campbell Folk School and at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts.
