September Artist of the Month

Jack Northop
September Artist of the Month

Cameron County Chamber of Commerce & Artisan Center shines the spotlight on Jack Northop as the August Artist of the Month. Northrop turns trees into bowls and vases of all shapes and sizes.

“I take scrap wood and give it new life,” Northrop boasts. His bowls feature the imperfections that nature gave the piece of useful art. Many customers have purchased the bowls for wedding gifts in celebration of a couples new life together.

Northrop got bit by the woodturning bug 30 years ago, when he was making a bedroom suite. The bedposts were turned by Northrop and when he retired he moved to the area of the Allegheny National Forest and spends his days giving new life to scraps! His choice wood includes black cherry, walnut, maple, sumac and butternut locust.

The Cameron County Chamber of Commerce & Artisan Center carries numerous one of a kind bowls and vases created by Northrop. Stop in the chamber Monday-Friday 10am-4pm, Saturday 9am-1pm or Tuesday nights 6:30-9:30.
