About Jim Spencer
I am not a conventional artist but I am a craftsman of different skills perhaps using the same strategies and concepts as a conventional artist. I was a wood shop teacher at Champion High school. I have worked in many shops including metal, casting, machine shop, welding and other shops not art related.
However my projects innovative and at an advanced level and many are correlated to a specific person for whom they were made and sometimes combined with a reflective writing. Many projects are intentionally one of a kind. The art here is in the balance of design, form, function, precision by technique and personal dimension.
