Sea Grape Gallery, Punta Gorda F L artwork by Our featured 3D artist for February is Woodturner Jim Ellsworth.  Jim has been working with wood as a hobby since high school, but after retirement from his banking career, he began studying woodturning as a creative outlet.  He frequently attends seminars and symposiums to learn new techniques. Although he creates using a variety of woodturning styles, he especially enjoys producing segmented turnings.  Jim’s artwork includes both purely decorative pieces and also functional pieces, such as pepper mills, vases, clocks, pens, and candle holders.
