Black on Black textured vase by Friebertshauser

An ongoing exhibit at Michigan Medicine offers a view of various types of vessels made from wood.

They include traditional and functional lathe turned bowls, vases, candle holders, lidded boxes, jewelry (using carved wood as a platform for found objects like driftwood and seashells) and nonfunctional sculptural forms.

Reinhold Friebertshauser is a retired arts department chair and primary school teacher. He and his wife, Ann, a fiber artist, spend winters in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and summers in the of the quiet beauty of the cedar/spruce/balsam fir forest of Les Cheneaux islands in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. They live in a house Reinhold designed and hand built there 40 years ago.
