Lloyd Marsden holds a wood bowl after finishing it on the lathe. The bowl will have to dry for several days before Marsden sands and oils it. The bowl will be auctioned at a fundraiser for the Sagebrush Community Art Center in Sheridan. Marsden has been turning wood since his youth — his father was a woodworker and had Marsden working early on. Marsden works as a part-time engineer, but he spends much of his time in his basement making bowls from an assortment of woods. Marsden’s work walks the line between functionality and art — his products are usually for sale during the Sheridan Community Art Walk or during the auction fundraiser at the Sagebrush Community Art Center in the historic train depot.
