Don Wattenhofer | Shop 505’s August 2019 Featured Artist

hand turned bowl with inlay
Don Wattenhofer, woodturning master, is bringing his mini-studio to the Watermark’s south lawn Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 10am to 2pm. Wattenhofer is known for highlighting the natural imperfections and bark edges of his wooden hand-turned sculptures.

The character of the wood grain glows when light passes through the impossibly thin walls of some of his masterpieces, and he uses resinous inlays made from turquoise, pipestone, and azurite mineral powders on the more sturdy pieces.

As our featured artist for August 2019, Shop 505 is displaying Wattenhofer’s collection of toys, fiber art tools, tankards, urns, bowls and goblets for the entire month.
