It takes a lot of light to make trees grow. The wood they provide is the basic material for Konrad Koppold's vessels and objects. The ancient craft of woodturning, i.e. turning a wooden workpiece and simultaneously removing the chips, is for me the most sensual form of woodworking. It is impressive how thin-walled the objects created in this manner can be. The simple, clear forms reflect the special character of the chosen woods. Distortions and fissures, the results of natural shrinkage, are incorporated in the artistic design and make up the works' special charm. The characteristics of the wood always help to determine the design and challenge the artist to bring out its hidden beauty.
