Monthly featured Artist

Mike Hunter

Though not a prolific poster on WoW, Mike has certainly shown us some beautiful work in his album; exploration of the calabash form from the frozen tundra of Minnesota is a wonderful juxtaposition! More importantly, though, is Mike’s support of WoW through his frequent comments and willingness to share insight on process. Notable, too, is his contribution to the woodturning community at large through his tool company in support of the hobbyist and professional, alike.

The WoW family is fortunate to have Mike as an active and contributing member and is pleased to honor him as the Artist of the Month for November 2020.

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.
