About this project

Taking the natural shape and form of the wood as a starting point, Max’s vessels explore a strong relationship to form, function, and the experience of sculptural objects in space. Using a combination of woodturning and hand carving he creates objects that celebrate the making process. There is no striving for perfection in this process. Instead he seeks a depth of understanding that comes only through the intimate nature of working and manipulating a material by hand.
