Featured Turner: Jim Degen

A mainstay of Nutmeg for some 23 years, Jim has always enjoyed working with wood. A 1998 class with Beth Ireland changed his perspective to focus on woodturning.  Classes followed with Andy Barnum, Angelo Iafrate, Richard Raffan, Stuart Mortimer, Lyle Jamison, Michael Hosaluk, Bob Rosand, and Binh Pho. Jim began teaching at Brookfield in 2004, after he helped set up the current turning center. “I still have a sense of ownership of the place,” he says, “having made all of the tool racks, towel holders, floor pallets, and task- lighting fixtures. Eighteen years later, I still enjoy teaching and find that I keep learning from my students.” Turning, he says, “allows the artist to display the beauty of the wood to its full potential. Every piece is a journey of discovery.  I usually have a general shape in mind when I start a piece, but as the work progresses nature intervenes and the wood tells me how to proceed. I like to let the wood work for itself.”
