Stuart Mortimer

Stuart Mortimer
Woodturner, Teacher & Demonstrator

As can be seen from the exemplary work on the gallery pages of this site, Stuart Mortimer is a woodturner par excellence.  Whilst he is world-renowned as an authority on, and is an inspirational demonstrator of, the techniques of spiral turning, Stuart also does more conventional turning.  That description though may seem to conflict with the fact that Stuart holds what is believed to be the world record for producing the largest lathe-turned wooden bowl, a feat which was undertaken through a series of exhibitions, making ever-larger examples, culminating in the record set at the American Woodworker Show held in Philadelphia in 1997.

In addition to his work as a very popular demonstrator, Stuart also undertakes commissioned work for clients from all over the world and examples of his work are held in many of the world's leading collections as well a being featured in various galleries.

Beyond this, Stuart is also a teacher of woodturning and offers tuition at all levels in his own workshop which is equipped with a range of lathes, including a VB36, one of the lathes specially developed to meet the needs of today's generation of big-bowl turners.  Stuart and his wife are also able to offer homely accommodation to students, if required.

If you are interested in receiving instruction from Stuart, in commissioning work from him, or of requesting his assistance as a demonstrator of woodturning, then please use this link to send him an e-mail detailing your requirements and giving your direct contact information.
