Bobby Phillips

Bobby Phillips, a laid back native of Mitchell
County, North Carolina has been turning wood since 1988. After retiring in
1989, he says that turning has become almost a full-time activity. Bobby’s work
consists of several types of vases (usually classical shapes) as well as
greenware — bowls, salad bowl sets and platters.  He experiments with different woods, many
coming from the North Carolina
mountains, and also works with exotic woods from other countries. Bobby’s burl
pieces are exceptionally beautiful, his expertise shining through.
