Considered a pioneer of contemporary turned wooden bowls and vessels, Edward Moulthrop dedicated his life to master this skill. These graceful, fluid forms he created were then meticulously shined and polished enhancing the grain and patina of the wood. ‘Ed Moulthrop was among a small and select group of wood-turners that brought an ancient craft into the sphere of contemporary art,’ said David McFadden, chief curator and vice president of the Museum of Art and Design in New York. ‘Today, turned and sculpted wood is one of the liveliest and most exciting mediums due to the standards of excellence set by such artists as Ed.’
