Max Brosi

Biography

Max Brosi strives to achieve the purest and simplest line to define the volume of the vessel. The beach pebble inspired him to focus on pure flowing forms and tactile surfaces; the subtle carved edges on these pieces represent the waves of the ocean in NW Ireland, where Max lives. His practice also takes into account how people with visual impairments can experience and enjoy his work through line and texture.

Max has exhibited widely in Ireland and the USA. His work is featured in the permanent collection of The Center for Art in Wood where he took part in the International Turning Exchange Residency in 2007. Max is the recipient of various accolades including an excellence award from the American Association of Woodturners and winning the Royal Dublin Society medal for woodturning.
