The turner, Helge Hollund is currently living in Bjerkreim.
In the basement I have a working area
where I enjoy spending time on wood or perhaps I am upstairs
by the computer doing genealogy research.
The turning started in 1971 on a drill
gun, but later I have got more equipment to help
me do what I want to do. The last 10 years before
I was pensioner, I worked as a handicraft artist
mostly turning bowls. I have been a member of The
Norwegian Association of Art and Crafts and have
attended their exhibitions and arrangements.
like to create things people can use in their
practical life, or perhaps just have the wooden
items before them to enjoy looking or I make
aesthetic bowls and pure artistic creations from
wood. Showing how God through many years shaped
the tree from a little seed. When the tree is
mature and cut down I do a little work.
Sometimes I create items on the border of
what is possible to make out from the woods, my
tools and not at least my skill.
