Monthly featured Artist

Chris Pytlik


“Chris Pytlik of Sandy, Utah has been turning for over 12 years. Initially he sought to turn the perfect salad bowl but after a few years he branched out into hollow forms.

Chris' hollow forms are known for his creative use of color and flawless highly polished lacquer finish. This combination of color and depth of finish is easily recognizable as Chris’ signature style.

WoW celebrates Chris Pytlik as the Featured Artist of the Month for May 2016.”



The World of Woodturners site (WoW) originated in November, 2001. At its start it was the only interactive site where woodturners could post photos and descriptions of their work and engage in discussion about their art. WoW members think of themselves as a family. They are artists who have become friends and who willingly share their talents and skills. This is a place where the novice freely mixes with the seasoned professional in an atmosphere of shared respect. No one is anonymous and everyone uses their own name. From this venue has arisen some incredible art, some of which can be seen in the public gallery. Enjoy this display of fine work. Access to the site itself is at no cost, by obtaining a membership invitation from an existing WoW family member or contacting site administration at wowadmin@shaw.ca. Include your name and a brief description of your woodturning experience in the message.

The site is owned and maintained by the World of Woodturners, Inc., a non-profit organization.

Site design and hosting is a partnership between Webenology, LLC and Informanix Technology Group Inc.
