Augusta wood sculptor Michael Bauermeister is the cover story for the June/July issue of American Craft magazine.

The cover features one of Bauermeister’s signature tall wooden vessels, and inside is an eight-page spread featuring a story and more photos.

The Missourian has done feature stories on Bauermeister’s work in 2009 and again in 2011 when he was given wood from a 150-year-old walnut tree that was growing next to George Washington’s whiskey distillery at his Mount Vernon Estate in Virginia by Historical Woods of America, a company that takes historic trees that have fallen naturally or are being removed for construction and has them turned into works of art.

Both stories are available on in the People/Features section.
