Gaius’ first experience with woodworking was making laminated slingshots from scraps in his father’s workshop in the late 1950s. An old wood lathe that had been in his family for several generations initiated his interest in wood turning, which forms the basis of much of Gauis’ artwork today. After an early retirement in 2002, he began wood turning full time, and in 2004, started creating segmented bowls and vases, which quickly became his favorite projects. They offer unlimited opportunities to be creative – combining different colors and patterns – and the results can be stunning.
