RODGER JACOBS Biography

Experience and imagination are only part of what woodworker Rodger Jacobs calls on to create his art. Whether functional or decorative, the sculptures are also dictated by the wood itself.

Jacobs’ work has been exhibited at the Hickory Museum of Art (NC), the Arizona Art Museum and the Gibbes Museum of Art (SC). His sculptures can be found in collections including Asheville Art Museum (NC), National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum (IL) and Grandfather Mountain Nature Museum (NC).

Rodger currently works from his studio in Western North Carolina.

RODGER JACOBS Statement

“The commitment I have to woodturning is complete. I find pleasure and freedom with a dash of danger in turning. More and more, pure sculpture seems to be finding its way into my life. I have developed my techniques from the forerunners of modern turning. I believe in using the wood that I find locally. It is part of the fun to tramp through the woods looking for distressed, burled, spalted, or even plain trees. It is hard work getting the logs and pieces out of the woods. It’s worth it though. Every time I open a piece it’s like Christmas, and every piece is different.”
