Welcome to Auntie Red’s Art From Nature.

This web site is under construction.

I am slowly trying to get it up and running so please be patient with me. I have never had a web site before:)

I love turning wood.  It is so beautiful and each piece is unique. Turning wood is like celebrating Christmas. You start with a block of wood that might be non descript. As you turn it the colour and character start coming out. Then you add the finish and the character just pops out. It is like opening the package and seeing the surprise.  Each object I turn is one of a kind. There are no two pieces of wood that are exactly alike. Many similar but not exactly alike.

I love Myrtlewood. It is a wonderful wood with lots of colour and character. It is not available in Washington State as it only grows in South western Oregon. So my husband and I make trips down for wood.  I also turn a lot of Washington State Maple, fruit trees and pretty much anything else I  can find.

Many of my fun items are made from other hardwoods.

All bowls have a food safe finish so if you do decide to use it, it will be safe. All are washable with warm soapy water.

If an item has a different finish such as an oil or wax finish it will be noted under the product.

At this point there are just a few medium sized salad bowls listed. Pictures are being taken for all the others. So if you are interested in a small dish or anything listed in the products page just contact me and I will send you pictures of what I have available.

I hope you enjoy what I have done so far on the site and I really hope you purchase a bowl and enjoy it’s beauty and warmth for years to come.
