first and only museum exhibition to feature three generations of
America's consummate woodturning family: Ed
Moulthrop, his son Philip Moulthrop,
and grandson Matt Moulthrop.
A renowned innovator in contemporary woodturning design and a strong
influence on the development of the field, family patriarch Ed Moulthrop
is a self-taught master craftsman well known for his large-scale
bowls and other simple shapes that have a striking symmetrical perfection
and classic sculptural design. An Atlanta artist, he has created
some of the largest lathe-turned pieces in the world, many standing
more than four feet tall. Today, three generations of Moulthrops
have coaxed exquisite wood-turned creations from rough-hewn tree
stumps, and the name "Moulthrop" has become internationally synonymous
with contemporary woodturning.
