KRH Woodturning
  • Category: Wood Worker

KRH Woodturning is the company of Ken Hawtin, who is a carpenter by trade and a self-taught sculpture with 45 years in wood crafting. Ken specializes in finely turned wood vessels that are always one-of-a-kind, from art pieces to wall hangings, urns, lamps with shades you can see through and much more. He creates both functional and ornamental pieces.

Many of the pieces Ken creates are turned until they are paper thin, and then pierced using a small dentist drill, which allows him to work on intricately detailed designs. He burns, airbrushes or paints to give his pieces an original finish. Ken likes how working with wood is a very organic process; that the grain of wood or even defects gives direction to the way a piece develops.
