Charles Wright Sculptor, Retired Educator
"To make meaning or to create a desired shape dictates what my preferred method or medium can be at any one time; however, my current favorite medium is wood. I like the subtractive carving process with wood; however, in order to make connections, and to achieve a particular shape, I will, without hesitation, use additive methods of joining materials together with glue or dowels. I am focused at the moment on making pedestal top size wood work."

Eli Blasko: Graduate Student Western Carolina University
Eli Blasko is an artist and designer based in Western North Carolina.
He primarily works in sculpture with an emphasis on wood as material. His work ranges from exploring traditional craft and design techniques to expansive conceptual interventions into the lives of objects and highly detailed constructions for public, commercial, and gallery settings. Many of his projects begin as research-based inquiries into the history of objects, images, and geographies.
Eli received a BFA from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania in 2012, and also studied in the Studio of Intermedia+ at The Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia. He holds credentials as a craft instructor in carpentry and welding from the National Center for Construction Education Research, and is currently an MFA candidate for 2022 at Western Carolina University.
