Monthly featured Artist

Robbie Graham

Robbie Graham is a New Zealand resident who makes his living as an artist. He likes to promote wood turning as an art form rather than just a medium for practical items although for years made his living as a production turner of everything from veranda posts to drawer knobs.

Robbie’s wood turned art pieces are easily recognizable as he likes to incorporate multi-axis and offset turning techniques to create pieces that give the illusion of something nearly impossible to create on the lathe. He further enhances his amazing turnings with fine finishes, paints, inks, pyrography, texturing or carving to create unusual surface effects.

Robbie shares his art frequently with the WoW family, exhibits in numerous galleries and enters many competitions. His art is in private collections all over the world. WoW is pleased to celebrate Robbie Graham as Featured Artist of the Month for March 2018.

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.
