After Ray Key passed away, his wife, Liz, found quite a number of part turned items in his workshop. After discussion with the Association of Woodturners Great Britain Executive, it was agreed, that these pieces would be sent to a number of internationally renowned turners to finish in their own style.
Such was the sphere of influence of Ray, the project has resulted in 124 turners from five continents agreeing to take part in the collaboration with pieces being posted out to them.
All these finished pieces will be displayed at the three-week exhibition at Nature in Art, Gloucester from the 2nd to the 21st of July
Here is Guild Life Member, Don White with the piece he made for this exhibition. A very fitting tribute to the late, great Ray Key.
We are hosting a solo show for Don White in the Autumn (17 September to 3 November) at The Guild at 51.
