> DESCRIPTION

Drawn from local collections, the present exhibition represents the work of three generations of the acclaimed Moulthrop family of woodturners. Ed Moulthrop (May 22, 1916–September 24, 2003), credited as the “father of modern woodturning,” was a noted architect and professor before becoming a woodturning artist and transforming it into a widely respected art form. His son, Philip Moulthrop (born November 12, 1947, in Atlanta, Georgia), was an attorney who abandoned the legal profession to work as a full-time woodturner. Philip’s son, Matt Moulthrop (born November 8, 1977, in Atlanta), followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. He turned his first bowl at the age of 7. The family has been documented in the book Moulthrop: A Legacy in Wood, among others.
