John (Jack) is a self developed artist who had an early interest in making and building things with his hands.  In the mid 1980’s he began a serious interest in wood turning which awakens his active imagination.

Wood turning is as old as time itself.  Early civilizations made vessels for practical use.  Vessels display the beautiful grain hidden within the wood. Decorated wood turning is relatively new and has now become an artist’s medium, while retaining the beauty of the wood itself.   

Over the years Jack has made plant stands, magazine racks, baby cradles, desks, armoire, jewelry and toys.
