This exhibition of twenty exquisite works in wood celebrates two artists at the pinnacle of their careers – John Mascoll and Avelino Samuel - whose first tool, a wood lathe given to the world by the ancient Egyptians, has served as a springboard to imagination, flights of fancy and ingenuity.

Curated by Charles Farrar, Shaping the Vessel: Mascoll + Samuel highlights the mastery - and remarkable achievement - of two artists who have elevated the development of the art form. It is their work, which occurs after the lathe, that has propelled them to acclaim among the best working in the medium today.
