Wood turned vessels on display at Taubman Center

January 25, 2023  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Bob Savit is a woodturner, cellist and emeritus professor of physics at U-M. 

As a theoretical physicist, his scientific work was wide-ranging including high energy physics, non-linear systems and statistical mechanics. 

Working in wood for over 25 years, Savit uses local domestic hardwoods and some imported woods to create a range of elegant vessels, from bowls and platters to wall hangings and decorative hollow vase forms. He strives to emphasize balance and form in his pieces and provide a showcase for the warm and entrancing grain and figure of the wood. Some of his pieces also incorporate restrained surface embellishments such as carving, texturing and coloring.

Some of his work is now on display at Michigan Medicine:
