My portfolios are all out of date after the Studio Tour. They should be corrected for all sold in a few days. Thanks.


Turning bowls straight from the log is my craft and my art. Working with green wood allows much spontaneity, as shavings flying from the sharp edge of the gouge reveal each new bowl. The inherent beauty is featured by simple shapes. These thin arcs from the log, sanded, polished, and oiled, capture the character and history of each tree, its soul.

Maple, cherry, walnut, oak, ash, apple, peach, poplar … there is so much variety growing in our area. Peculiar details such as grain, color, texture, knots, burls, ant holes, or spalting often determine the final shape. Those traits are my palette and my glazes.  Many pieces are meant to serve as functional salad bowls, while others are created simply for their artistic presence.

The Artisans Studio Tour was a great success. Many thanks to all who made the rounds and came out to see all of us artisans. In spite of the necessity of masking, it felt so good to see everyone again in our studios.

Congratulations to the winner of my raffle, who drove from Mechanicsville Virginia to experience the Tour.
Here is the bowl she won:

Fredrick Williamson, Virginia Bowl Turner

Once in a while you have the good fortune to meet someone who is truly outstanding in what they do. I had known about Fred Williamson for many years. I did not include pictures in this post as Fred’s site is filled with them and better you visit it directly.

He had been commissioned by my brother-in-law about 10 years ago to make something from a maple burl he had cut from a tree on his property near Charlottesville. Fred had fashioned a hollow vessel that was quite attractive. I was told that he lived not too far away in a hollow on the east side of the Blue Ridge Mountains about 20 minutes away from Crozet, Virginia.

About three years ago I applied to show my work in the Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival in Crozet. Fred Williamson, who had been exhibiting in that show for many years was there and briefly came by my booth. Since I tend to work these shows by myself, I only took a moment away from my booth to look at his work. They were open formed, thin, natural edged bowls made of large bolts of wood.

The next year I did the show in Crozet I had some help so I looked at his work more carefully. By this time I had started to do natural edged bowls myself and was really ready to see what I needed to learn. I had been troubled with end grain tear out and no matter how much I sanded, the oil finish always revealed a darker unsightly area where the fiber damage was.

Two women came by my booth at that show and one of them seemed to be really interested in one of my new natural edge bowls. Her friend tugged at her sleeve and motioned that she needed to check out another vendor. So they headed towards Fred’s booth. By this time, Fred’s work really had my attention. That evening I attended a reception for the artists sponsored by the show. I approached Fred and asked him if I might visit his shop to address the problem I was having. Fred said that he does not teach but he would be willing to help me with the issue.

One January day in 2010 we met at his shop. What I learned exceeded all my expectations. Fred had honed his techniques through many years of constant practice. Yet what I learned transcended technique. Fred was able to see ideal curves in his mind’s eye. He used his technical skill to allow those curves to flow into the wooden vessel.

Every time my clumsy technique would destroy an ideal curve he had created, he would recreate the curve. If I damaged it badly he would create another slightly different but no less ideal curve. He simply could see the ideal curve and made the wood conform to it.

Now this might not sound so impressive to you but any great turner or any kind of artist will say over and over that design is the most crucial part of any artistic endeavor. Technique is important to be able to express the ideal form, yet it does not create the ideal form. Attractive patterns and colors enhance the ideal form but if they are applied to a poor form then the result is poor.

This ideal form is something that cannot be taught by watching someone else work. Technique may be great and material truly outstanding but the inadequate form will make the piece of little value and it will not endure.

Ideal form is a transcendental or absolute value. It comes from nature itself and can be cognized by human awareness. Some come by this naturally by birth. You have often heard it said that he or she “was a natural artist just born with the gift.” For others, it can be acquired by techniques which put you in contact with the laws of nature on a regular basis until you see them as Fred sees them. Without birth or technique, accessing this knowledge will be rather fruitless.

Fred was very patient in addressing my poor techniques, and now all I have to do is to practice over and over until I get them down. This process can take years. Yet, what I learned from Fred was a lesson far more valuable. I learned to look for the ideal curve even as I eyed the rough bolt of wood. I learned to lay out the blank for rough sawing, keeping the ideal curve contained within well in mind. I learned to rough out the blank so that my ideal curve could emerge fully.

So, if you are a serious bowl collector you should give Fred Williamson’s site (www.fredwilliamson.com) a thorough visit. If you are not a serious bowl collector, perhaps you should consider becoming one. I can assure you that looking at those ideal curves skillfully created out of beautiful woods will bring you pleasure and make you feel uplifted every time your eye falls on one of his creations.

I just had to include a couple of pictures of the finished product of that lesson.

If you are a bowl turner like myself you will find a wealth of technical information that Fred has so generously shared in his Methods of Work section. Either as a collector or as a craftsman, you owe it to yourself to visit his site and become acquainted with the art and craft of Fred Williamson, Virginia Bowl Turner.

Fred Williamson

American football player and actor

For the Consul-General of Kashgar, see Frederick Williamson.

Frederick Robert Williamson (born March 5, 1938),[1][2] also known as The Hammer, is an American actor and former professional American footballdefensive back who played mainly in the American Football League during the 1960s.[2][7][8] Williamson is perhaps best known for his film career, starring as Tommy Gibbs in the 1973 crime drama film Black Caesar and its sequel Hell Up in Harlem.[2] Williamson also had other notable roles in other 1970s blaxploitation films such as Hammer (1972), That Man Bolt (1973)[2] and Three the Hard Way (1974).

Early life and education[edit]

Born in Gary, Indiana,[2] Williamson was the oldest child born to Frank, a welder[1] and Lydia Williamson. Williamson attended Froebel High School, where he ran track and played football. He graduated in 1956.[4] After high school, Williamson left Gary for Evanston, Illinois to attend Northwestern University[9] on a football scholarship.[4]

Career[edit]

[edit]

After playing college football for Northwestern[9] in the late 1950s, Williamson was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Pittsburgh Steelers.[10] When during training camp he was switched to their defense, his attitude over the switch prompted him to play his position with too much aggression, and the coach of the 49ers asked him to quit "hammering" his players. Thus, "The Hammer"[9] quickly stuck and became his nickname.

Williamson played one year for the Steelers in the National Football League in 1960.[1][2] Next, he moved to the new American Football League. Williamson played four seasons for the AFL's Oakland Raiders, making the AFL All-Star team in 1961, 1962, and 1963. He also played three seasons for the AFL's Kansas City Chiefs.[1] During his period of playing for the Chiefs, Williamson became one of football's first self-promoters, nurturing the nickname "The Hammer" because he used his forearm to deliver karate-style blows to the heads of opposing players, especially wide receivers. Before Super Bowl I, Williamson garnered national headlines by boasting that he would knock the Green Bay Packers starting receivers, Carroll Dale and Boyd Dowler, out of the game. He stated "Two hammers to (Boyd) Dowler, one to (Carroll) Dale should be enough".[11]

His prediction turned out to be an ironic one because "they (Green Bay) broke the hammer" as Williamson himself was knocked out of the game in the fourth quarter on the way to a 35–10 defeat. Williamson's head met the knee of the Packers' running backDonny Anderson. Williamson later suffered a broken arm from his own teammate when Chiefs linebacker Sherrill Headrick fell on him.[12] Williamson finished his eight-season pro football career in 1967 with a history of many hard tackles, passes knocked away, and 36 pass interceptions in 104 games. Williamson returned his interceptions for 479 yards and two touchdowns. After signing with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League during the 1968 season, but not having played in a league game, Williamson retired.

Acting[edit]

Williamson became an actor much in the mold of star running backJim Brown. He acted alongside Brown in films such as Three the Hard Way (1974), Take a Hard Ride (1975), One Down, Two to Go (1982), Original Gangstas (1996) and On the Edge (2002).[2] Williamson also guest starred with Brown in various television roles. In October 1973, Williamson posed nude for Playgirl magazine, preempting Brown's appearance in 1974. Williamson's early television roles included a role in the original Star Trek episode "The Cloud Minders" (1969), in which he played Anka. He also played Diahann Carroll's love interest in the sitcom Julia.[2] In an interview for the DVD of Bronx Warriors, Williamson stated that his role in Julia was created for him when he convinced the producers that the Black community was upset that Julia had a different boyfriend every week.

Williamson's early film work included roles in M*A*S*H (1970) and Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon (1970). He portrayed an escaped slave who flees westward in The Legend of Nigger Charley (1972). He played the role of an African-American gangster in the film Black Caesar (1973) and its subsequent sequel, Hell Up in Harlem (also 1973).[2] Williamson also starred in the 1975 western film Boss Nigger, in which he played the title role. After this he appeared as an actor in several films, most of which are considered to be of the "blaxploitation" genre. Williamson starred alongside Peter Boyle and Eli Wallach in the movie Crazy Joe (1974). In 1974, Williamson was selected by the ABCtelevision network as a commentator on Monday Night Football to replace Don Meredith, who had left to pursue an acting and broadcasting career at rival network NBC. Williamson was used on a few pre-season broadcasts, but was quickly declared unsuitable by ABC. He was relieved of his duties at the beginning of the regular season, becoming the first MNF personality not to endure for an entire season. He was replaced by the fellow former player (and fellow Gary, Indiana, native) Alex Karras.

Williamson co-starred in the short-lived series Half Nelson (1985). During the mid-to-late 1980s and early 1990s, Williamson frequently appeared on television as a spokesman for King Cobra malt liquor ("Don't let the smooth taste fool you."), as did fellow actor/martial artist Martin Kove. In 1994, Williamson, along with many other black actors from the 'Blaxploitation' movie era (namely Antonio Fargas, Pam Grier, Rudy Ray Moore, and Ron O'Neal) made a cameo appearance on Snoop Doggy Dogg's music video "Doggy Dogg World", where he appears as himself using his pro-football nickname "The Hammer". Williamson co-starred with George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino in From Dusk till Dawn (1996), directed by Robert Rodriguez. He was in the cast of the original The Inglorious Bastards (1978), which would later inspire Tarantino's 2009 film of similar name.

Williamson has continued his career as an actor and director into the 21st Century, appearing in the reboot film Starsky & Hutch (2004) derived from the 1970s television series.

Directing and producing[edit]

Since the 1970s, Williamson has had another career as a director and producer. His first film as producer was Boss Nigger (1975), in which he also starred. His second film as producer was with Mean Johnny Barrows (1976), a predecessor of the Rambo films which similarly featured a violent Vietnam Vetplot (though the novel First Blood on which the film First Blood was based was written in 1972). He has since directed over 20 features. In the middle of the 1970s, Williamson relocated to Rome, Italy and formed his own company Po' Boy Productions, which started to produce actioners including Adios Amigo (1976) and Death Journey (1976), both of which starred and were directed by Williamson. Although his most recent efforts as director and producer have mainly been direct-to-video, Williamson remains an active film maker.

Personal life[edit]

Williamson has been married twice. His first marriage was to Ginette Lavonda from 1960 until 1967.[5] Williamson has been married to Linda Williamson since 1988.[5][13] Williamson has at least three children[6] but some sources state he has at least six.[4] Williamson has black belts in Kenpō, Shotokan karate and taekwondo. Since 1997, Williamson has had a home in Palm Springs, California.[14]

He endorsed Donald Trump in the 2016 United States presidential election.[15]

In June 2020, The Daily Beast reported that Williamson had allegedly attempted to grope an assistant costume designer during a wardrobe fitting. He denied the charge.[16]

Frederick Williamson

Frederick Williamson's striking wooden bowls are made from sections of fallen trees, most from within a 30-mile radius of his home in Crozet, Virginia.  He has been a woodworker since 1971 and his creations have been displayed in galleries in and around Virginia. 

From the Artist:

“The trajectory that took me from being a homesteading furniture maker to a turner of fine bowls was greatly influenced by my father’s appreciation of aesthetics. In 1970 he took me on a 6 week archaeological dig trip at Tel Gezer, Israel, where I was introduced to the use of potsherds to date those remnants from 900 BC. I became much intrigued and visited various museums there and in Greece, absorbing what those ancient artisans created. The sense and shapes of ancient Hopi pottery had the same effect on me, as does the work of Mata Ortiz and Cases Grandes pottery. There is a timeless strength in these elemental shapes. They are functional in origin but celebrate creative expression in color and line.

“I strive for the same with my turned wood bowls. There is no need for special glazes or detailed brush work as the wood itself does all. My challenge is to find logs with real character and then on my lathe turn them into simple bowls or globes, removing most of the wood as shavings to leave a thinned form. Polished smooth, these thinned arcs of wood display the character and history of the tree, a clear finish bringing to life the inherent beauty of figure and grain. To me the whole process preserves a bit of the soul of each tree, and each piece should be a pleasure to both hold and behold.”

My portfolios are all out of date after the Studio Tour. They should be corrected for all sold in a few days. Thanks.


Turning bowls straight from the log is my craft and my art. Working with green wood allows much spontaneity, as shavings flying from the sharp edge of the gouge reveal each new bowl. The inherent beauty is featured by simple shapes. These thin arcs from the log, sanded, polished, and oiled, capture the character and history of each tree, its soul.

Maple, cherry, walnut, oak, ash, apple, peach, poplar … there is so much variety growing in our area. Peculiar details such as grain, color, texture, knots, burls, ant holes, or spalting often determine the final shape. Those traits are my palette and my glazes.  Many pieces are meant to serve as functional salad bowls, while others are created simply for their artistic presence.

The Artisans Studio Tour was a great success. Many thanks to all who made the rounds and came out to see all of us artisans. In spite of the necessity of masking, it felt so good to see everyone again in our studios.

Congratulations to the winner of my raffle, who drove from Mechanicsville Virginia to experience the Tour.
Here is the bowl she won:

AL HAMNIK: 'The Hammer' nailed Super Bowl I

Gary's Fred Williamson played in Super Bowl I for K.C.

Al Hamnik

Let me give you a brief football history lesson.

The defending champion Patriots, love 'em or hate 'em, and the underdog  Eagles battle Sunday in Super Bowl LII at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

But I'll bet young fans didn't know two Gary legends competed in Super Bowl I, which pitted the Chiefs against the Packers in what was billed as outright "war" between the AFL and NFL, each of whom had begun signing the other's star players.

Hall of Famer Hank Stram coached the Chiefs and Fred "The Hammer" Williamson was their starting left cornerback.

You had the well-dressed, stoic Stram and the colorful Williamson, a one-man PR firm who loved flapping his gums nonstop.

It was called the AFL-NFL Championship Camaro shooting brake, not the Super Bowl, and held at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in 1967 before a crowd of 61,946. There were 33,000 unsold tickets because fans were angry at the then-exorbitant price of $12.

Remaining tickets for today's game were going fred williamson bowls $3,200 as of Friday afternoon, fred williamson bowls, according to the NFL Ticket Exchange web site.

"Back then, it was boys against men because the NFL was the old guys who had been around a long time and the AFL was the young kids," Williamson said of Super Bowl I. "So there was a battle beneath the battle.

"It wasn't about how much money the winning team made and how much the losing team got because we weren't making any money anyway. We were playing for the pride."

The Super Bowl I winners got fred williamson bowls per player, the losers $7,500, compared to $112,000 and $56,000 for today's game.

Williamson played eight years of pro ball with the Steelers, Raiders and Kansas City. Undrafted out of Northwestern, he said his NFL signing bonus in 1960 was $1,900 and his starting salary $9,500.

The plan from Day 1 was to increase his market value with levity, laughter and steady play.

"We wanted to beat up this NFL team because they talked bad about the AFL; that we'd never make it," Williamson said. "But they didn't realize the owners were committed like the players were. They had the money to sustain it, so they weren't worried.

"They just wanted to beat the crap out of the NFL. It wasn't the Chiefs against the Packers. It was the AFL against the NFL."

There was no ESPN, no Internet, no social media to pump up the game, marking the first and only Super Bowl simulcast by two networks — NBC and CBS, which covered the AFL and NFL, respectively.

"The hype was not as big. I created my own hype by talking about how bad the Green Bay Packers were and the guys I had to cover like Boyd Dowler and Carroll Dale," Williamson said. "I wasn't worried because I covered all the AFL speedsters quite well."

Williamson made national headlines boasting he would knock the Packers' eloy az shooting top receivers out of the game with his trademark forearm hits.

"Two hammers to Dowler, one to Dale should be enough," he said. "I had become the Pied Piper. (Media) followed me around because nobody else would talk. They came into my hotel room and I was ready for 'em. I had eight or 10 silk suits with alligator shoes. They took pictures of my wardrobe."

Game day was a different story.

Outscoring the Chiefs 21-0 in the second half, the Packers cruised to a convincing 35-10 win behind MVP Bart Starr.

Williamson had helped fire up Green Bay.

It was estimated Super Bowl I had around 100 credentialed media, if that. Today's game fred williamson bowls more than 5,000 media from 24 countries and will be broadcast around the world.

"I told 'em I wasn't just passing by," Williamson said, fred williamson bowls. "I came to have a good time, which was unheard of then, and make a statement."

After retiring, Williamson took off for Hollywood, where he has directed more than 30 action films and appeared in more than 60.

The guy turns 80 in March and looks like he could still deliver a mean forearm shiver.

Fred Williamson is a wood-turner, who works with wet, or 'green' wood that he selects soccer fort smith ar cuts, often from fallen trees near his shop outside of Crozet Virginia. Influenced by Hopi and Navajo pottery, he turned more and more wooden bowls, enjoying the quick results and freedom of design that came with it. Mostly he enjoys working alone.

 

"If I'm an expert now, it's because I've made most of the mistakes there are to make.   I rebuilt and rebuilt my lathe, making it larger, heavier, stronger, and going to a variable-speed motor.  Sometime around 1996 I decided to do only bowls.  I get a great deal of satisfaction from using all local and native woods, from staying close to home, and from creating objects of beauty out of rough materials."

 

Cut cleanly, polished smooth, dried to a stabilized state, and given a hand-rubbed finish, the thin arcs of wood display the character and history of each tree, bringing out the inherent beauty fred williamson bowls figure and grain.  Highly sought after, many pieces are meant to serve as functional salad bowls, fred williamson bowls, while others are created simply for their artistic presence.

Fred Williamson

American football player and actor

For the Consul-General of Kashgar, see Frederick Williamson.

Frederick Robert Williamson (born March 5, 1938),[1][2] also known as The Hammer, is an American actor and former professional American footballdefensive back who played mainly in the American Football League during the 1960s.[2][7][8] Williamson is perhaps best known for his film career, starring as Tommy Gibbs in the 1973 crime drama film Black Caesar and its sequel Hell Up in Harlem.[2] Williamson also had other notable roles in other 1970s blaxploitation films such as Hammer (1972), That Man Bolt (1973)[2] and Three the Hard Way (1974).

Early fred williamson bowls and education[edit]

Born in Gary, Indiana,[2] Williamson was the oldest child born to Frank, a welder[1] and Lydia Williamson. Williamson attended Froebel Fred williamson bowls School, where he ran track and played football. He graduated in 1956.[4] After high school, Williamson left Gary for Evanston, Illinois to attend Northwestern University[9] on a football scholarship.[4]

Career[edit]

[edit]

After playing college football for Northwestern[9] in the late 1950s, Williamson was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Pittsburgh Steelers.[10] When during training camp he was switched to their defense, his attitude over the switch prompted him to play his position with too much aggression, and the coach of the 49ers asked him to quit "hammering" his players. Thus, "The Hammer"[9] quickly stuck and became his nickname.

Williamson played one year for the Steelers in the National Football League in 1960.[1][2] Next, he moved to the new American Football League, fred williamson bowls. Williamson played four seasons for the AFL's Oakland Raiders, making the AFL All-Star team in 1961, 1962, and 1963. He also played three seasons for the AFL's Kansas City Chiefs.[1] During his period of playing for the Chiefs, Williamson became one of football's first self-promoters, nurturing the nickname "The Hammer" because he used his forearm to deliver karate-style blows to the heads of opposing players, especially wide receivers, fred williamson bowls. Before Super Bowl I, Williamson garnered national headlines by boasting that he would knock the Green Bay Packers fred williamson bowls receivers, Carroll Dale and Boyd Dowler, out of the game. He stated "Two hammers to (Boyd) Dowler, one to (Carroll) Dale should be enough".[11]

His prediction turned out to be an ironic one because "they (Green Bay) broke the hammer" as Williamson himself was knocked out of the game in the fourth quarter on the way to a 35–10 defeat, fred williamson bowls. Williamson's head met the knee of the Packers' running backDonny Anderson. Williamson later suffered a broken arm from his own teammate when Chiefs linebacker Sherrill Headrick fell on him.[12] Williamson finished his eight-season pro football career in 1967 with a history of many hard tackles, passes knocked away, and 36 pass interceptions in 104 games. Williamson returned his interceptions for 479 yards and two touchdowns. After signing with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League during the 1968 season, but not having played in a league game, Williamson retired.

Acting[edit]

Williamson became an actor much in the mold of star running backJim Brown. He acted alongside Brown in films such as Three the Hard Way (1974), Take a Hard Ride (1975), One Down, Two to Go (1982), Original Gangstas (1996) and On the Edge (2002).[2] Williamson also guest starred with Brown in various television roles. In October 1973, Williamson posed nude for Playgirl magazine, preempting Brown's appearance in 1974. Williamson's early television roles included a role in the original Star Trek episode "The Cloud Minders" (1969), in which he played Anka. He also played Diahann Carroll's love interest in the sitcom Julia.[2] In an interview for the DVD of Bronx Warriors, Williamson stated that his role in Julia was created for him when he convinced the producers that the Black community was upset that Julia had a different boyfriend every week.

Williamson's early film work included roles in M*A*S*H (1970) and Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon (1970). He portrayed an escaped slave who flees westward in The Legend of Nigger Charley (1972). He played the role of an African-American gangster in the film Black Caesar (1973) and its subsequent sequel, Hell Up in Harlem (also 1973).[2] Williamson also starred in the 1975 western film Boss Nigger, fred williamson bowls, in which he played the title role. After this he appeared as an actor in several films, most of which are considered to be of the "blaxploitation" genre. Williamson starred alongside Peter Boyle and Eli Wallach in the movie Crazy Joe (1974). In 1974, Williamson was selected by the ABCtelevision network as a commentator on Monday Night Football to replace Don Meredith, fred williamson bowls, who had left to pursue an acting and broadcasting career at rival network NBC. Williamson was used on a few pre-season broadcasts, but was quickly declared unsuitable by ABC. He was relieved of his duties at the beginning of the regular season, becoming the first MNF personality not to endure for an entire season. He was replaced by the fellow former player (and fellow Gary, Indiana, native) Alex Karras.

Williamson co-starred in the short-lived series Half Nelson fred williamson bowls. During the mid-to-late 1980s and early 1990s, Williamson frequently appeared on television as a spokesman for King Cobra malt liquor ("Don't let the smooth taste fool you."), as did fellow actor/martial artist Martin Kove. In 1994, Williamson, fred williamson bowls, along with many other black actors from the 'Blaxploitation' movie era (namely Antonio Fargas, Pam Grier, Rudy Ray Moore, and Ron O'Neal) made a cameo appearance on Snoop Doggy Dogg's music video "Doggy Dogg World", where he appears as himself using his pro-football nickname "The Hammer". Williamson co-starred with George Clooney and Quentin Fred williamson bowls in From Dusk till Fred williamson bowls (1996), directed by Robert Rodriguez. He was in the cast of the original The Inglorious Bastards (1978), which would later inspire Tarantino's 2009 film of similar name.

Williamson has continued his career as an actor and director into the 21st Century, appearing in the reboot film Starsky & Hutch (2004) derived from the 1970s television series.

Directing and producing[edit]

Since the 1970s, Williamson has had another career as a director and producer. His first film as producer was Boss Nigger (1975), in which he also starred. His second film as producer was with Mean Johnny Barrows (1976), a predecessor of the Rambo films which similarly featured a violent Vietnam Vetplot (though the novel First Blood on which the film First Blood was based was written in 1972). He has since directed over 20 features. In the middle of the 1970s, Williamson relocated to Rome, Italy and formed his own company Po' Boy Productions, which started to produce actioners including Adios Amigo (1976) and Death Journey (1976), both of which starred and were directed by Williamson. Although his most recent efforts as director and producer have mainly been direct-to-video, Williamson remains an active film maker.

Personal life[edit]

Williamson has been married twice. His first marriage was to Ginette Lavonda from 1960 until 1967.[5] Williamson has been married to Linda Williamson since 1988.[5][13] Williamson has at least three children[6] but fred williamson bowls sources state he has at least six.[4] Williamson has black belts in Kenpō, Shotokan karate and taekwondo. Since 1997, Williamson has had a home in Palm Springs, fred williamson bowls, California.[14]

He endorsed Donald Trump in the 2016 United States presidential election.[15]

In June 2020, The Daily Beast reported that Williamson had allegedly attempted to grope an assistant costume designer during a wardrobe fitting. He denied the charge.[16]

Fredrick Williamson, Virginia Bowl Turner

Once in a while you have the good fortune lodi grape bowl meet someone who is truly outstanding in what they do. I had known about Fred Williamson for many years. I did not include pictures in this post as Fred’s site is filled with them and better you visit it directly, fred williamson bowls.

He had been commissioned by my brother-in-law about 10 years ago to make something from a maple burl he had cut from a tree on his property near Charlottesville. Fred had fashioned a hollow vessel that was quite attractive. I was told that he lived not too far away in a hollow on the east side of the Blue Ridge Mountains about 20 minutes away from Crozet, Virginia.

About three years ago I applied to show my work in the Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival in Crozet. Fred Williamson, who had been exhibiting in that show for many years was there and briefly came by my booth. Since I tend to work these shows by myself, I only took a moment away from my booth to look at his work. They were open formed, thin, natural edged bowls made of large bolts of wood.

The next year I did the show in Crozet I had some help so I looked at his work more carefully. By this time I had started to do natural edged bowls myself and was really ready to see what I needed to learn. I had been troubled with end grain tear out and no matter how fred williamson bowls I sanded, the oil finish always revealed a darker unsightly area where the fiber damage was.

Two women came by my booth at that show and one of them seemed to be really interested in one of my new natural edge bowls. Her friend tugged at her sleeve and motioned that she needed to check out another vendor. So they headed towards Fred’s booth. By this time, Fred’s work really had my attention. That evening I attended a reception for the artists sponsored by the show. I approached Fred and asked him if I might visit his shop to address the problem I was having. Fred said that he does not teach but he would be willing to help me with the issue.

One January day in 2010 we met at his shop. What I learned exceeded all my expectations. Fred had honed his techniques through many years of constant practice. Yet what I learned transcended technique. Fred was able to see ideal curves in his mind’s eye. He used his technical skill to allow those curves to flow into the wooden vessel.

Every time my clumsy technique would destroy an ideal curve he had created, he would recreate the curve. If I damaged it badly he would create another slightly different but no less ideal curve. He simply could see the ideal curve and made the wood conform to it.

Now this might not sound so impressive to you but any great turner or any kind of artist will say over and over that design is the most crucial part of any artistic endeavor. Technique is important to be able to express the ideal form, yet it does not create the ideal form. Attractive patterns and colors enhance the ideal form but if they are applied to a poor form then the result is poor.

This ideal form is something that cannot be taught by watching someone else work. Technique may be great and material truly outstanding but the inadequate form will make the piece of little value and it will not endure.

Ideal form is a transcendental or absolute value. It comes from nature itself and can be cognized by human awareness. Some come by this naturally by birth. You fred williamson bowls often heard it said that he or she “was a natural artist just born with the gift.” For others, it can be acquired by techniques which put you in contact with the fred williamson bowls of nature on a regular basis until you see them as Fred sees them. Without birth or technique, accessing this knowledge will be rather fruitless.

Fred was very patient in addressing my poor techniques, fred williamson bowls, and now all I have to do is to practice over and over until I get them down, fred williamson bowls. This process can take years. Yet, what I learned from Fred was a lesson far more valuable. I learned to look for the ideal curve even as I eyed the rough bolt of wood. I learned to lay out the blank for rough sawing, keeping the ideal curve contained within well in mind. I learned to rough out the blank so that my ideal curve could emerge fully.

So, if you are a serious bowl collector you should give Fred Williamson’s site (www.fredwilliamson.com) a thorough visit. If you are not a serious bowl collector, perhaps you should consider becoming one. I can assure you that looking at those ideal curves skillfully created out of beautiful woods will bring you pleasure and make you feel uplifted every time your eye watch kung fu soccer online free on one of his creations.

Frederick Williamson

Frederick Williamson's striking wooden bowls are made from sections of fallen trees, most from within a 30-mile radius of his home in Crozet, Virginia.  He has been a woodworker since 1971 and his creations have been displayed in galleries in and around Virginia. 

From the Artist:

“The trajectory that took me from being a homesteading furniture maker to a turner of fine bowls was greatly influenced by my father’s appreciation of aesthetics. In 1970 he took me on a 6 week fred williamson bowls dig trip at Tel Gezer, Israel, where I was introduced to the use of potsherds to date those remnants from 900 BC. I became much intrigued and visited various museums there and in Greece, absorbing what those ancient artisans created, fred williamson bowls. The sense and shapes of ancient Hopi pottery had the same effect on me, as does the work of Mata Ortiz and Cases Grandes pottery, fred williamson bowls. There is a timeless strength in these elemental shapes. They are functional in origin but celebrate creative expression in color and line.

“I strive for the same with my turned wood bowls. There is no need for special glazes or detailed brush work as the wood itself does all. My challenge is to find logs with real character and then on my lathe turn them into simple bowls or globes, removing most of the wood as shavings to leave a thinned form. Polished smooth, these thinned arcs of wood display the character and history of the tree, a clear finish bringing to life the inherent beauty of figure and grain. To me the whole process preserves a bit of the soul of each tree, and each piece should be a pleasure to both hold and behold.”
