Michael Hosaluk, an internationally known artist based in Saskatchewan, tells stories in innovative wood work, ranging from functional vessels and furniture, to highly decorative sculptural pieces (Above: Bowl of Strange Fruit)
From the series I’m a Little Teapot, wood, acrylic paint, copper, horsehair; 7″h x 7- l/4″diameter
My work tells stories from my life, places I’ve been. people I’ve met, architecture, our environment. These stories are interwoven into the objects I create. Craft goes beyond the pleasure of our senses and deals not only with aesthetics, but social and ideological lives. –Artist Statement
