MADEric Spatt’s Lathe

We thought it would be fun to feature the lathes of each of the 4 MADE collaborators. Here are some photos from a recent visit to Eric Spatt’s workshop. Eric has a small business making bespoke pens from wood and metal. He uses colored resins to achieve the aesthetic qualities of traditional enamels, but with a more stable and durable surface.

After a tour of his unique collection of ornamental turning apparatus, we got an intimate look at his lathe. Eric keeps his shop in pristine condition, while somehow still managing to produce an incredible body of work.

At the end of the visit we set the MADE lathe up for some fixed tool work. Not surprisingly, the wood shavings were tidied almost immediately.
