Building on a lifetime of working with wood, Phil Brown began turning in 1975. He was initially self-taught, with his expertise enhanced by workshops, national symposia, journal articles, and local club demonstrations. His aesthetic emphasizes the grain and color patterns of local wood using smooth surfaces, and occasionally a natural edge. His vessels are shown in juried exhibits, and sold one-on-one or on the internet. His work is in seven museum collections and many private collections. He contributes to the wood-turning field with demonstrations, writing, and as an officer and volunteer in local clubs and craft organizations.
