Working with native Wisconsin woods, Ron Zdroik's creative focus is on wood turning bowls, but with a contemporary twist. Often he incorporates metal objects, glass and found objects. Ron says that his primary interests are acrylic, wood and scratchboard and that each of these methods allows him to express his ideas in different ways. His inspiration for his art pieces often come from nature, whether it is a flower or any other wonderful earthly object he encounters.
Ron adds that his ideas also extend to the farthest reaches of the cosmos - always having a fascination with the night sky, the science of astronomy and space exploration. Incorporating both the earth-bound subjects with the beautiful imagery of the vast universe connect him to the two. "We are all star stuff and I try to develop that concept in my art - by combining the beauty of earth and the majesty of the universe,'' he concludes.
