“I make wooden vessels because I have found in them a form of expression that is nearly limitless and that offers the viewer a handle with which to access this sculptural work.  I like the way my ideas flow from one vessel into the next... into the next, with no effort from me.  The only work involved is the physical labor of laminating, turning, carving and polishing necessary to bring them into the world.  I don't hide the marks of this craft. I want people to feel the energy that went into making the piece, but in a restful sense...the way I feel at it's completion.

Most of my vessels are built up out of layers of wood stacked horizontally. I start with a wide thick board from which I cut rings...one inside the next.  These are glued upward to make the rough form. It is then carved, turned, etc.  I like to use a variety of woods and finishes, which give a rich color tone to the vessel.” - Michael Bauermeister

"Michael Bauermeister’s wood sculptures capture the wonders of the natural world he loves: pebbles on the shore, a twist of vines, that first exuberant burst of growth in spring. Waves of grain, ripples on the water, and canopies of leafy tree branches come to life on the soulful surfaces of his carved vessels and wall panels and seem almost to move if you gaze long enough. Their rich colors range from forest greens and the deep browns of fertile soil to orangey golds and yellows so citrusy you can practically taste them.”
