Joseph Ray, woodturner
Joseph Ray, of Kingfield, Maine is a woodturner who ‘turned’ his love of wood into his artistic
expression in 2000. His interest lies in “elliptical, ‘un-round’, and irregular pieces - unique and
unduplicatable.” Joseph draws his inspiration from the wood itself; its figure, color, and
general outline. His goal is to produce a moment of visual pleasure for the viewer of his work.
“Innovative, artistic, and excellent technical quality” are a few of the descriptors used when
speaking of Joseph’s art which has earned him many prizes, caused him to be sought after for
commissions, and to be shown widely throughout New England in both Juried and Invitational
