Curt Minier

Curt Minier long ago left a career in aerospace to pursue a more creative life, and dabbled in architecture and painting before finding his passion — working with wood.

In the heady days after Minier discovered woodworking, he had an apprenticeship at the Baulines Crafts Guild in California, where he studied the Espenet style (begun by Arthur Espenet Carpenter), a contemporary California craft movement. Minier also helped found Northwest Fine Woodworking, a Pioneer Square artists’ cooperative devoted to handcrafted woodwork.  He is known as a furniture-maker, but has since given up making chairs; now, his line of turned madrone bowls, hand-dyed and lacquered, exudes a friendly, warm glow. Minier says he doesn’t like doing the same thing twice:  “When I get a commission, it’s one of a kind.”

Curt lives and works on Vashon Island, Washington.

Dimensions: 5" x 4-3/4". There are more of these bowls available in the gallery in different colors, shapes and sizes. Please contact the gallery for further information,...
