Sculptures are statements frozen in time that capture imagination and raw beauty. Dave Barkby’s rustic burl wood sculptures are stunning creations that will give your home or office a unique focal point. Barkby Woods Gallery in Dover, PA is renowned for the rough-hewn elegance of turned wood wall sculptures.
Dave is a true artisan who uses burl wood as his medium, and woodturning as the process. He uses a large scale lathe to shape wood into oversized (as big as 10’ in diameter) free-form sculptures. Woodturning is Dave’s passion. Following a successful career as a custom cabinet maker, Dave directed his creative efforts to woodturning, one of the few woodturners in the country to work exclusively on large-scale wood sculptures.
His artistry earned him the status of Juried Member in Woodturning by the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen in 2000. Dave's work has been shown in many art galleries and art shows over the years throughout the United States and Europe.
Currently he’s working with Buckeye Burl, Redwood Burl, Willow Burl and other woods that are native to the Northeastern US.
