Scott's Bio

“I let the wood dictate the shape and elegance of what it will become.”

Scott Isom has developed a reputation as a pure form wood turner.  In his work, he strives for purity of line and simplicity of design, aimed at releasing and enhancing the beauty of the wood.

He has been working with wood for most of his life.  However, 25 years ago, he started wood turning and quickly realized that this could be the source of endless creativity for him.  It freed Scott from the confines of pre-cut materials.  Wood became a multi-dimensional, moldable material with unlimited possibilities.

Creating bowls, platters, vases, round boxes, and other items became a passion.  Scott finds he is most comfortable when seeking beauty through simplicity. When he begins a piece, Scott lets the wood dictate the shape and elegance of what it will become. The goal is to create shapes that best show the grain and form of the piece of wood.  

As a wood turner, Scott is mainly self-taught, but was initially mentored by his uncle, whose wood turnings have been sold in many galleries across the United States.  Scott’s broad experience of working with wood also keeps him from thinking of himself solely as a wood turner.  At the December, 2007, Small Works Show, held at Mirror Pond Gallery, in Bend, Scott was awarded “Best of Show” for his Wooden Inlaid Trinket Box for his “Obvious Commitment of Time, Patience, Skill and Procession.” His artwork was chosen for display in the Sales Gallery of Art Central’s Mirror Pond Gallery and juried into Circle of Friends Art & Academy

Scott's work will be on display and for sale at Northwest Crossing Farmers Market  June through September 2016 and various other venues in Bend, Oregon.

Hi Scott,
I brought some of your juniper Christmas trees and wooden bowls to friends and family in Germany. You're getting around the world! Blessings!
