[SOUND] Josh Fogul is my name and I'm a sculptor and woodworker. I work mostly in wood. I may have a preconception of what I want. To achieve, and the material answers back in a way that describes its limits. My responsiblity is to test that limit. It's to go further until it says no that's it. [LAUGH] Turning kind of demands this Attention not unlike meditation. A rhythm gets developed. Just the machine spinning wood, chisel. [NOISE] I'm 100% more interested in the process. And I think it's also probably why I don't mind casting these things off after I'm done with them is the beautiful moment for me was in the creation. Something happens on top of your technique. That transcends everything. [SOUND] That's the point. That's the whole reason that you work your **** off. [SOUND]
