Monthly featured Artist

Sally Burnett

Sally Burnett is from Staffordshire, Great Britain. Sally worked as a designer and maker of glass panels, vessels and ceramic installations.

Of late, Sally has utilized her artistic and design skills to use turned green wood as a canvas while creating open forms with texture and carving.

Her work can be described as the perfect combination of the beauty of turned green wood decorated by bleaching, texturing, and embellishing with pyrography and then accented with color and metal leaf. Sally seamlessly incorporates all of the embellishment techniques into her work.

WoW is pleased to celebrate Sally Burnett as Featured Artist of the Month for July 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 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.
