A beautiful piece from the 2022 Honorary Lifetime Member, Kip Christensen.

Kip has been a respected force in the world of woodturning for many years. As a leader in the field, Kip has authored articles and books, demonstrated nationally and internationally, and brought learning opportunities to many through coordinating events like the Utah Woodturning Symposium, the woodworking program at BYU, as well as countless classes and workshops around the world.
Writes Terry Martin, “In a turning world where the accolades often go to those who push themselves forward, dedicated woodturning teachers are not given the status they deserve. Kip Christensen has contributed more than most, but he always felt that seeing his students succeed is the best reward he can receive. His legacy will survive as they, in turn, hand on all that they have learned to new students.”

An accomplished artist as well as instructor, his work, held n numerous public and private collections, is described by curator Kevin Wallace as “aesthetically pure and technically precise.” The AAW is proud to hold one of his pieces in its Permanent Collection.

Whether it is through teaching, his artwork, his advocacy for youth, or his organizing skills, Kip is a calm, effective, and service-focused leader who has added immeasurably to the progress in our field.
