Barbara Jones, Cupertino, CA: Turnings

Working in 1:12 and 1:24 scale, Barbara Jones, Cupertino, CA prefers fruitwoods such as pear, apricot, cherry and orange for her woodturnings. She also enjoys turning acrylics. Her main source of inspiration comes from those turners who turn full-size artwork. Barbara also serves as advisor to the Chairman of the Good Sam Show Committee. Email: northbaj@att.net
