Dennis Fuge is a self-taught wood turner from Erwinna, PA, who has been turning for 45 years. Dennis was President of the New Jersey Woodturners Association and has demonstrated at events up and down the east coast. He has traveled to South Africa, Hong Kong and around the USA. In recent years, Dennis attended the Arrowmont School of Art and studied with Dave Regester in the UK. Dennis turns a wide variety of items, but his main focus is on deep hollow vessels, platters and artistic pieces. A lot of his work focuses on what nature has already started; he allows the wood together with its flaws and faults to determine what the finished item will look like. Some of his work will use wood as a canvas to be embellished using color, mixed media and carving. Many of the woods he works with are from the Northeast and what he calls road kill or rescue timber.
