John Wesley Williams

We met John at his studio up on Butler Mountain near Renick ,WV  just a few weeks after the flooding in Greenbrier County. The drive up up the mountain afford some wonderful views. When we arrived John was working on a new commission which you will see in the video.

He is an award-winning designer and craftsman of fine furniture. As a craftsman, he says he “wants my work to make a bold and assertive search for an identity. Learn more about John at http://johnwesleywilliamsfurniture.com.

ArtVoiceWV: Tim Wohleber

Tim Wohleber jumped into making rustic twig furniture around age 15, after he read a book about making your own furniture. He started with small personal items but family and friends were impressed and asked him to create something for him. A friend of his in Elkins, where Tim hails from, ask him to make some beer taps and bar stools for him. And from there Tim became a serious twig furniture maker. You can learn more about Tim at http://www.arcadianfurnishings.com.

ArtVoiceWV: Neil Super

Several years ago Neil Super left his job to become a full-time home dad. As his children got older, he grew restless, which led to various creative pursuits that included tapping Sugar Maples and making pure maple syrup for sale at local farm markets. At some point he began to pursue his love of beautiful wood by making carvings from fallen maple branches, and ultimately purchased his first wood lathe. That was roughly eight years ago. Today, examples of Neil’s turnings can be found in local craft and art galleries, juried art exhibits, and the May, 2014, issue of Southern Living Magazine, among other places. A member of the Artist’s Co-ops of West Virginia’s Berkeley and Morgan Counties, Neil is currrently producing turnings from wood taken from places of local and regional historical significance. He operates under the banner “Two Rivers Turnings” and lives and works in Historic Shepherdstown.
