Monthly featured Artist

Vinny Luciani

Vinny hails from Colorado Springs and is a member of two clubs in that area.  His album on WoW naturally divides itself into three broad themes: an exploration of pods, sea life, and hollow forms and boxes with pyrography.  The unifying element to his work is an attention to detail in form and finish whether it be a deeply carved piece, or a graceful vessel adorned with flowers.


The WoW family is fortunate to have Vinny as an active and contributing member and is pleased to honor him as the Artist of the Month for February 2023.

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, Inc and Informanix Technology Group Inc.
