This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Oklahoma artist, Nathan Hart wood turns bowls, platters, and vessels "with small mouths that mimic ceramic pots."

Born in Kansas, the artist moved to Clinton, Oklahoma at the age of 2. Growing up he enjoyed sports, nature, fishing and building structures out of old logs.

He attended Bethel, his parent's alma mater, and majored in industrial arts-woodworking, metal-smithing, etc. But with less than a year left he switched to business. After graduation he worked to improve the economic
status of Oklahoma tribes along with coaching football.

Around 2001, he began his career as an artist. He was always interested in making furniture, but did not want to purchase all the costly equipment, so he started with a lathe and turned bowls to "see what it was like. I found what I wanted in wood turning," remembers Hart.

Today his wooden vessels range in size from 2 to 20 inches and are made of native Oklahoma woods like pecan, hackberry, walnut, and oak. Interested in highlighting natural patterns of the spalted grain (result of moisture trapped inside the wood), he encourages this process by sealing the end of a log with paraffin and storing it under a pile of wood shavings.
