Lathed Totem Poles

 Second-year  MFA Fine Arts  student Kostas Lales has been frequenting the VFL's wood shop and here he is using the lathe to carve foam blocks. In this case, he created parts for his ongoing series of totems, which he was able to generate quickly having learned to use this tool previously. Kostas' work combines traditional sculptural techniques with a contemporary sense of symbolism and the relationship to the body, so we look forward to what he makes next!
