An accomplished woodturner, pyrographer, mentor and artist, Molly Winton is also an AAW Board member with a passion for the Educational Opportunity Grants program.

"Education for the advancement of our membership, and introduction of our craft to the greater community, is one of the primary reasons for the existence of the AAW. One significant way to fulfill this mission is through our EOG (Educational Opportunity Grants). EOG provide an opportunity for individuals, clubs, and schools to obtain financial support to further their advancement in skills, and educational outreach through the greater community.

These funds come solely from proceeds raised through the EOG/Education auction held during our International Symposium.

I strongly encourage bidding high on every auction item, to support and further our educational mission, and help spread the word of this amazing craft. It is SO worth your effort and support!"

About the Artist

"I was introduced to woodturning while in high school, but it wasn't until 22 years later that I again stepped in front of a lathe. In 1998, I sold my Vocational Rehabilitation business so I could be home with my growing family. At the time, my husband presented me with a lathe of my own, but I wouldn't have the opportunity to work with it regularly until my children reached school age. A brief exploration in pottery introduced me to the importance of form and design, the foundation to any embellishment of my turning, be it branding, pyrography, coloring, texturing, or carving. I endeavor to make wood pieces that pursue excellence of form and beg to be picked up and caressed. When exploring a source of inspiration for my surface enhancements, I looked to my interests in Native American and prehistoric art. Since childhood I have been facinated by the creative expression of native North American cultures, petroglyphs of the Columbia Plateau of the Northwest, as well as the cave art of Lascaux, France and Altimira, Spain. My artwork reflects their influences."
