Functional art, one-of-a-kind creations, are turned by Don Thur from the most unique burls found in this legendary Ontario lakeland. Dating back to the beginning of habitation, and the tradition of the woodworking trade, these works have a museum-like quality, an art-gallery integrity, yet a functional capability for any appreciative household.
Don Thur began wood turning in 1995 and by 2000 had opened his Country Studio/Gallery with wife Mary, as "Knots and Burls to Bowls"
All the wood turned by Don is representative of the Muskoka area, making his finished pieces "grown and crafted" entirely in the district. No living trees are harvested for the sake of art.
