Monthly featured Artist

Evelyne van Dam

Evelyne has followed an unconventional path in her short woodturning journey. Enrolling in the Escoulen School 4 years ago with no experience, she has since created some very original and innovative work, much of which she has shared here on Wow. Her passion is best expressed thusly; “Every day that I start my day with a piece of wood on the lathe is a good day! Searching for that perfect line and finesse is so satisfying, I don't see time passing by. I particularly like to work with green wood, searching that line and if you found it, letting go of it by giving nature's force the last word.”

The WoW family is fortunate to have Evelyne as a member and is pleased to honor her as the Artist of the Month for December 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.
