Coffee Hour #86: A Tribute to Stephen Hogbin

We lost a truly great one last week on January 13, 2022: the Canadian wood artist and educator Stephen Hogbin passed away at age 79, in Owen Sound ON Canada where he lived. During the 1970s, Stephen flashed on the design opportunities in the cross-section of the turning and he began cutting and reassembling bowl forms in ways no one had seen before. He continued to produce visually startling turnings, furniture, sculpture, stairways, and complete interiors, always new ideas and often colorful. His long career included teaching at Sheridan College near Toronto and a seminal fellowship in Australia. In 2006 the AAW awarded him its first-lifetime professional achievement award and exhibition. In 2015 Stephen closed his own workshops to focus on Intersections Gallery and Wood Studio in Owen Sound.

This week’s Coffee Hour was dedicated to the life and contributions of an outstandingly creative individual who had a huge impact on the art of woodturning.
