Bill Mauzy turns walnut, cherry, boxelder and other native woods into turnings as rich in grain as they are smooth to touch.
He shapes hollow forms and bowls with a lathe and chisel, turning most of them twice to ensure lasting stability. His latest bowls feature rims textured and painted in colors that pair beautifully with a bare wood center.
Bill lives in Sewanee where he has spent more than 45 years building finely crafted wooden homes on the Cumberland Plateau. He is a University of the South graduate, C’72, and serves on the board of directors for the Tennessee Association of Woodturners.
