Meet Shanti Yard...

We met Shanti and his family at the Festival In The Park in Spearfish, SD in mid July. He turns large objects - bowls, vessels, platters - usually from burl that was harvested in his native Appalachian Mountains, in Southwest Virginia. You can see some of his work on his website, but a two-dimensional visit doesn't do it justice. There is a show schedule on the site: this year, he worked venues in Florida, Georgia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Idaho, Colorado and Wyoming.
