Former student Marc Granberry (BED ’85, MSLD ’87)
has carved a niche in the art world as a woodturner, creating
stunning bowls and vases with a wood lathe.
He started out designing and building furniture and moved to
woodturning after discovering on old lathe in his father’s
garage. He went on to study under a number of noted artists,
each one, he said, providing him with a great deal of inspiration.
His highly valued work has been widely exhibited throughout Georgia.
“Form, shape, color and texture are the things that I
use to bring out the beauty in the wood that I turn,” Granberry
is quoted on the Signature Shop and Gallery Web site, where some
of his work is currently on exhibit. “I believe that wood
is naturally beautiful. I strive to enhance that beauty through
the work that I make.”
