Master skilled workmanship of over 35 years. Wood Turning is a craft known to be over 3000 years old! Existing fragments of a wooden bowl dating to 700 BC were recently discovered in an Etruscan tomb. The Egyptians undoubtedly turned the legs of chairs and stools and other objects. (An illustration of a lathe carved on an Egyptian tomb wall dates back to 300 BC.) Turning was certainly known in Grecian and Roman times. The Zick family, from Nurenberg, Germay, produced in the 16th and 17th centuries, many of the exotic and seemingly impossible pieces seen in museums today. The Copenhagen museum has in its collections objects made by Christian V and Frederick IV, both kings of Denmark. Two French kings Louis XV and XVI, were ornamental turners and collectors. Turning is and art which requires many years to master. The ability to take a simple square piece of wood and turn it into a work of art is what master wood turner Maik Fayad does on a routine basis. Maik Fayad began turning at the age of fifteen and fell instantly in love with the art. Specializing in architectural ornamental spiral turning, Maik can create spirals anywhere from a quarter inch in diameter to over fourteen inches in solid wood. His alluring designs spawned from his imagination, captive both the artist and the admirer alike. Ornamental turning enhances the beauty of plane turned objects. A process that is uniquely different from traditional wood turning. Sanding helps to finalize the shape and smooth the work piece in some areas or sharpen the corners of squares in others.
