SLICES OF SONORA | David Windsor and Janet Windsor

The trees in the Sonora Desert often appear stunted and dead, their forms twisted, the bark black, flaking and peeling. In the winter when the leaves have dropped, they truly look lifeless. However, when you look inside, a world of beauty is revealed. David and Janet present the inside beauty in polished and turned wood and fabric abstractions. The natural world of our desert home is their inspiration and the source of their raw materials.

SLICES OF SONORA is the third exhibition of the 2019-2020 Entry Gallery Project Space; this is our third year of exhibition series that offers Arizona artists an intimate space for cohesive projects.


“I consider my turned pieces usable art. The raw materials for my pieces are trees salvaged from Tucson and the surrounding desert. The challenged growing conditions often result in wood with striking grain patterns. Other features I take advantage of are knots, bark inclusions, sapwood and wormholes. For each piece, I strive to choose a form that best takes advantage of the grain and features and then use a variety of inlay materials to fill voids. Each of technique is used to take advantage of the unique characteristics of these fascinating desert woods.”

– David Windsor

“I use the desert around me to inspire my works in fabric. The endless variation of color and form lends itself to abstraction in fiber. With this collection, I have branched out in new directions. I have used hand-dyeing, embroidery, applique; all of which have been used sparingly, if at all, in my previous work. I have used new materials including wool, tie-dyed velvet and linen, embroidery floss, beads; the better to reveal that hidden beauty inside those dark twisted trees.”
