Monthly featured Artist

Gary Lowe

Gary Lowe is from Elgin, Great Britian where, as a self-taught woodturner, he makes the majority of his turnings from locally sourced timber, although he sometimes imports exotic timbers for a special job.

Gary lets the beauty of the wood decide the final shape, and generally start his turnings from a rough idea but no final plan, and he makes extensive use of rich color to further enhance the beauty of the form.

WoW is pleased to have Gary Lowe as a member and to have his work on our site. We take great pleasure in featuring him as our Artist of the Month.


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.
