Welcome to Artisans Turnings – Artisans Turnings is a feature website for artistic turnings produced by Artisans of the Valley. Although incorporated into furniture making turning traverses well beyond the barriers of table legs, finials, and spindles. Master Craftsmen Michael Pietras and Eric M. Saperstein decided to create this site dedicated to their personally spun creations. The acquisition of a Powermatic 3520B lathe and an assortment of new equipment vastly expanded their capabilities, providing an opportunity to explore larger, heavier, and more complex turnings.
Eric and Mike are now sharing their 2013 & 2014 pieces through Fortuna Fine Arts of New York, NY. Information about gallery events and tours of their artwork will be published shortly. Please explore the site for more information about our artists, our work, and our upcoming events.
