Daryl Moses is a local artist who lives with his wife, Dawn, in McMinn County. He is retired from M & M Mars and now stays busy on their 60 acre tree farm. Daryl has always enjoyed working with his hands and decided to put his woodworking skills to use by constructing garden & storage sheds, making furniture & cabinets, and his latest passion, woodturning. He creates one of a kind pieces from trees that have fallen naturally on their own property and occassionally from friends & neighbors. He has done custom orders for clients who wanted an heirloom piece made from a tree that had sentimental value. He is self-taught, starting with a small lathe making items such as bud vases, candlesticks, birdhouses, rolling pins and more. Graduating to a larger lathe, he began making more sophisticated pieces like Natural Edge & yarn bowls but his passion is making Hollow Forms & Urns. Daryl enjoys taking a rough piece of wood and bringing out the beauty, Mother Nature has hidden inside. From the words of Joyce Kilmer, “Only God can make a tree”, this local artist has literally “turned” his passion into art.
This month, we are offering a 25% discount on woodworking by Daryl Moses. See reception for details!
