Over a 45 year period Don White's woodturning evolved from a range of small gift items, domestic salad bowls and platters, and architectural work. Repetition honed hand eye co-ordination, developing the techniques and skill necessary, enabling the progression to individual, one-off pieces that are sought after by collectors and galleries. Strong uncluttered forms are sometimes enhanced by the use of colour, texture and carving.
Sadly, Don passed away in December. He was a long standing and active member of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen and will be greatly missed. Don was an extremely skillful maker with a distinctive sensitivity – his shapes delicate and refined. He had a sophisticated understanding of colour and texture.
We are able to continue to offer Don’s work for sale by the kind permission of his family.
