About Lanchi Vo

As a woodturner and wood collector, I utilize a wide variety of domestic, exotic and salvaged timbers. Each piece of work is labeled with the scientific name(s) of the species involved. I incorporate the incredible color and pattern of timbers into my natural inspired designs. My turnings have simple profile, minimal decorative accents--nothing to distract from the wood's intrinsic beauty. However, the intricate details are hidden in the threaded caps, my specialty. A screw-on cap transforms an ordinary wooden container into a novelty, adds a significant level of complexity, and an element of surprise-- an unexpected "twist"--to the box. I take the surprise a step further, disguising the box in natural forms: acorns, mushrooms, eggplants...or small wooden pendants with secret compartment. The result is a collection of whimsical, unique containers that is both functional and decorative.
