Photograph of Ralph J. Turner about 1968 in Syracuse, New York

Ralph first learned carving under his fatherís tutelage and then with Fred Littmann at the Portland Art Museum and finally with Jan Zach and Gerald di Guisto at the Univeristy of Oregon where he obtained a Masters of Fine Art, majoring in Sculpture, in 1962. His main interest was in carving, but he worked a lot in clay and plaster and did some casting in bronze and aluminum as well.  He taught Sculpture at the University of Arizona in the years 1962 to 1965, before working in technical sculpture at the Lunar and Planetary Lab there.
