Monthly featured Artist

Marshall Gorrow

“Marshall Gorrow from New York has been turning wood for 25 years. He turns anything and everything that can be turned from wood and he always does it well. He says he has been concentrating on Christmas ornaments and boxes with hand chased threads. His work is always immaculate in its form and finish.

Marshall retired after a 50 year career of various jobs that included being a teacher, a production machinist, and working in sales and management.

Besides his beautiful work Marshall can always be counted on providing a kind and encouraging word or helpful critique for virtually every piece posted on WoW. His encouragement and help makes better turners of everyone who visits WoW.

WoW is proud to celebrate one of the genuine nice guys in the WoW family, Marshall Gorrow, as Featured Artist of the Month for November 2017.”

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.
