    This April, GCWA welcomes special demonstrator Sally Ault to Houston for a Demo Day.  Sally has a diverse turning repertoire. She has demonstrated and taught at many prime events and locations.

    Sally will also be teaching two days of classes while she is in town. The topics are being worked out so if you have specific requests please pass them along to our HOW coordinator, George.

    If you are not familiar with Sally and her work read, the following and check out her web site, or her Facebook page.

    Ms Ault was born and raised in San Diego, California and graduated with a BA degree in Art with a Crafts emphasis from San Diego State. Her work there was focused on weaving, jewelry design and ceramics. During a furniture class, she discovered woodturning. After a break of a number of years, she resumed woodturning in 2004.

    Sally mentions “I enjoy all types of wood turning but currently my focus is on lidded containers including the sea Urchin series, open bowls, embellished pieces and jewelry.”

    Ms. Ault’s work is shown in the Dunn Gallery in Kapaau, Hawaii, the Real Mother Goose in Portland, Oregon, the gift shop at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colorado, at the A Store in Albuquerque, New Mexico and in the gallery at Studio 38 in Spanish Village Art Center in Balboa Park, San Diego.

    Sally has won numerous awards and prizes for her work. She has demonstrated at the Utah Woodturning Symposium, the AAW Symposium, SouthWast Association of Turners (SWAT) as well as many clubs and public events across the country. Ms. Ault has completed an Artist in Residency program at Anderson Ranch Arts Center and teaches at Arrowmont Center for Crafts.

    We will follow our Demo Day format for this meeting, so anticipate an early start, a quick break for lunch, a mid-afternoon finish, no Show-and-Tell and no Raffle, BUT WE WILL BE COLLECTING EMPTY BOWLS!!!!
