Wood Turner

Kevin Bassett is an accomplished wood turner for over 25 years. Highlights of his career include numerous demonstrations for Dallas Area Wood Turners and other North Texas woodturning clubs. Kevin won First Place in the first “Master’s at Work” competition at Beavers Bend State Park in Oklahoma in 2007. A return to the competition in 2009, Kevin won Third Place. Kevin has been a regional demonstrator twice before and will be a regional demonstrator again at the South West Area Turners Symposium in 2019. Kevin has had his work exhibited in art galleries in Arizona, Colorado, Texas and Arkansas.

Kevin’s work is collaboration with nature. Highly skilled in numerous woodturning techniques, Kevin’s work ranges from architectural spindle turning, to boxes, bowls, platters, vases and hollow forms. Kevin is an awarding winning Certified Arborist and much of his work is carried out on wood gathered and re-purposed from his work as an Arborist. His work is informed by his deep understanding of trees, their associates and of the natural world. This outlook is a natural progression from his training as an Arborist and Plant Pathologist.
