Ward Dill

Ward Dill has loved the feel, look, smell, and patina of wood for as long as he can remember. Acquiring his first lathe at the age of fifteen, he has over forty years of work turning wood—most often without knowing what he is making until a shape emerges. Influences come from nature, from the human form, from classic periods, from science, and from emotional states of being.

He is an inventor.

He is a father. He is an athlete. He is an empty-nester. He is a husband.

He embraces failures as monuments to learning and badges of courage for having attempted things beyond his skills.

He loves a challenge.
