Quirk is thrilled to feature the work of Petersburg-based artist and carpenter, Alain Joyaux in a special two-day trunk show in the Main Gallery on Saturday, July 21 from 11 am to 5 pm and Sunday July 22 from 12 pm to 4 pm. Alain will have a collection of handmade bowls available for sale.
Alain Joyaux is an artist and craftsman with an interest in exploring ways to push natural materials into unexpected shapes. He worked with clay and precious metals for over 15 years and recently turned his talent and curiosity to wood. His wooden bowls are all made from locally sourced wood and turned on a lathe when the wood is still green. Alain repairs some cracks with Dutchman or butterfly inlays, adding further visual appeal to the surface of the bowls.
