Bryant began his study of woodturning at age thirteen and then continued studying with Mike Law, an industrial woodturner. Two goals drive his work: to make the perfect bowl and to move into pure sculpture. This philosophy echoes that of the late James Prestini, also featured in the Mason Collection. Bryant’s turned bowl in the exhibition demonstrates very careful handling of the material, with a respect for its fragile nature.
