Burchard, a native of Hamburg, Germany, currently works in Ashland, Oregon. He began his woodworking career making furniture, and evolved into a woodturning artist. Burchard often turns wet wood on multiple axes into spherical forms. Native American woven baskets inspired his basket series, in which he gives the wood the same flexibility and softness as the woven reed of the baskets. Click here to watch Burchard turn a sphere.
