Derrick Te Paske

As a college media professor at Framingham State College, I am usually involved with theoretical issues and digital production methods. As a purposeful alternative, I also do woodturning, a distinctly low-tech process with very physical products. I am primarily interested in hollow forms, often with woodburned, treated, or textured surfaces. My work is represented at several New England galleries; a woodburned piece is illustrated in the book "500 Wood Bowls"; and I am an Artist Member of the Medici Society (School of the MFA, Boston).
