Nikos Siragas Short Biography

Nikos specializes in combining turning and carving to create artistic sculptural forms using mainly local woods from the island of Crete where he has lived all his life.  He takes his inspiration from the sea, which he lives close to, as well as being influenced both by the beautiful natural environment he lives in and the classic forms of Ancient Greece.  He has a vast range of woodturning experience as he has supplied his own gallery in Rethymno for the last 30 years and has helped in restoration projects of Venetian and Turkish buildings in the historic old town of Rethymno.  In addition to running his gallery, he holds woodturning courses in his workshop, writes articles for Woodturning magazine, has designed a deep hollowing tool for Hamlet Tools in the UK and demonstrates and teaches each year in various places in Europe.  More recently he has set up the first Greek woodturning club and started demonstrating in schools to help encourage young people to take up woodturning.
