John Ballard

North East, PA

John Ballard has created with wood in many different formats for over forty years. His fascination with driftwood, glass, rock, and debris that has been weathered and transformed by the pounding of the waves and sand inspires work that combines the unusual shapes, textures and patterns of discarded and reclaimed elements and objects to make unique assemblages of dimensional art.  His original designs range from commercial displays and commissioned furniture pieces to fish carvings and dimensional driftwood wall art.  His work has been displayed at numerous galleries and shows in northwest Pennsylvania and western New York.
