Monthly featured Artist

Sally Ault

Sally was born and raised in San Diego, California and graduated with a BA in Art with a Crafts emphasis from San Diego State University. Her work there was focused on weaving, jewelry design and ceramics. During a furniture class, Sally discovered woodturning. After a break of several years, she resumed woodturning in 2002.
Sally enjoys all types of wood turning but currently her focus is on lidded containers including the Sea Urchin series, open bowls, embellished pieces and jewelry.

Now fully retired, Sally can be found sharing her time and talents at various galleries, retreats and teaching workshops throughout the country. Recent sightings have been made in Port Townsend, WA, Las Vegas, NV and Cedar Springs, MI, to name a few. She is also quite active in the AAW nationally as well as her local chapter, San Diego Woodturners Association.

The WoW family is fortunate to have Sally as a contributing member and is pleased to honor her as the Artist of the Month for July 2019.

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 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.
