"Having studied Industrial Design at Pratt Institute I founded two Package Design companies. After 30 years of making products for others it was time to return to my artist roots. I discovered WoodTurning in 2008 and became addicted to the process of peeling away layers of wood to create beautiful forms. In my Montvale, NJ studio my focus is on Bowls, Wood Art and Jewelry." — Alan Adler

They are ingenious contraptions, the place where Rube Goldberg meets the falling-down barn in a wheat field. View Katie's work in the Center's Collection »
