Description

Award winning artist Dennis Elliott started working in wood in 1972. Self-taught, his focus and major concentration has been on large burl wood vessels, “Wall Sculptures” and Interactive Orbital pieces with frequent use of sandblasting, carving or burning the wood and often incorporating alabaster, exotic woods, semi-precious stones and/or metal in the object.

In the year 2000 began developing the Gemini, Gemini Orbital and Orbital Axis Series of interactive art. Says Elliott “The whole concept of the series is to be able to rotate the piece on its base whenever one wishes to give it a different look. I feel this involves the viewer in the actual artistic process.”
