Continuing Phil's legacy

The world lost a beloved and influential turner when Phil passed away in 2018.  Phil’s pieces are found in many major private collections of turned wood in addition to museums and public collections.

Phil’s pieces often took years in the making to allow a piece to dry after rough turning his delicate shapes.  His shop was filled with hundreds of roughed out bowls, some which have been drying since the mid 1970’s.

Phil left behind hundreds of roughed out and partially finished pieces.  Alex, his youngest daughter, is now trying to continue his legacy by finishing his creations.
