Over the past thirty years, woodworker David Ellsworth has become known as one of the premier designers of turned wooden vessel forms. Ellsworth developed a process called hollow turning, which results in the creation of thin hollow wooden vessels that are considered both craft objects and formal sculpture.

Inspired by his prior experiences working in clay, his love of wood, and Native American ceramic and basketry forms, Ellsworth’s creations express the spirit and pulse of his raw materials. Ellsworth’s turned wooden forms can be found in museums throughout the world. He has lived in Bucks County since 1981, when he relocated to the area with his wife, seed bead artist Wendy Ellsworth, from Colorado.
