2. Bowl by Ed Malesky
ABOUT ED MALESKY
Ed has always been interested in woodworking and developed his skills to focus on woodturning as art.
He feels that creating his art always starts with a beautiful form. Turning wood into these forms is a truly tactile and very enjoyable experience, complicated by the fact that wood is an organic material that moves and distorts as it dries or contains hidden defects. Sometimes he can use these features and sometimes he needs to plan ahead to get the form he wants.
A beautiful form can be enough, especially when he has used a spectacular piece of wood. However, his real goal is to draw an emotional response from the viewer, so often this initial form is just the canvas for his work. He loves adding color and texture to his pieces using dyes, paints, pyrography and other processes that allows the viewer to see something beyond just a piece of wood. The love of color and shapes has also led him into the world of digital images. Ed is amazed at the way a computer can generate beautiful images starting with some simple forms. There is a lot an artist needs to add however, since there are thousands of variables to apply to these simple forms to create a beautiful image. Once all the parameters are set, the computer begins the arduous task of rendering the image, which in many cases takes more than a day.
Form and color, texture and complexity are his tools, whether in wood or on paper.
IRMA CHERRY BOWL
"This beaded calabash style bowl was one of the pieces Ed made from a very large cherry tree that came down in his yard during hurricane Irma. The bowl is 9" in diameter, twice turned and of robust design. The cherry will continue to darken and get a richer hue over time."

HANNA PARK DUNES
From the series - “Parks” - State and City Park
One of my favorite past times is to visit both State and City Park, always taking photos to use as inspirations for paintings. This small study is representative of the glorious sand dunes at a diverse and well groomed City of Jacksonville Park - Hanna Park on the Atlantic Ocean. Worth a day in the park.
