Ray Asselin

Woodturner Artist


New England woodturner Ray Asselin, is the maker of fine burl wood bowls, vessels, and other turned items.TTurned wooden bowls have been utilitarian items since about 1300 bc. Today, they're also valued as decorative art objects in their own right. The wooden bowls Asselin makes are intended to be displayed and appreciated as works of art, showing the beauty inherent in various woods, particularly in the burls of North American and Australian trees. 

Each piece is handmade on a woodturning lathe in his small New England workshop, carefully shaped, finely sanded and finished, then buffed and polished to a silky smooth lustre. Hopefully, they will bring great enjoyment to those who appreciate the warmth, texture, color, and grain of wood.

JEFF AND DIANE KONTOFF
Jewelry Artist

In my youth, I was always fascinated by rocks and minerals. After a long career in engineering, I now have the opportunity to re-explore this interest by making jewelry. I make my own cabochons from materials having pleasing colors and/or eye-catching patterns. My jewelry designs typically are simple geometric shapes. I like to treat each cabochon as a work of nature as art and use sterling silver and/or copper to frame the stone like a picture.  Recently, I have begun a new line of sterling jewelry using glass filled epoxy.  With colors and patterns inspired by my wife Diane, I hope you will find these as appealing as my cabochon line.

The stones have been shaped and polished by the natural forces of surf, wind and sand.

As a native Vermonter, I grew up in the foothills of the Green Mountains. The regions Greek Revival houses and soft rolling hills are reflected in the fluid curves and classic lines of my work. Having been a jeweler for thirty-five years, I constantly strive to develop a clean , elegant and affordable collection.”
