David Warther Carvings, located in Ohio's Amish country, is open every day except Sunday from 9 to 5. We are located atop Square Hill on State Rt. 39 between the villages of Sugarcreek and Walnut Creek Ohio in the center of Ohio's Amish community.
For 2015 we are part of the Blue Star Museum - a grouping of over 2000 museums nationwide that offer free admission to active duty service personnel and their families from Memorial Day thru Labor Day. This includes National Guard and the Reserves. Show us your military ID and you and your family are admitted at no cost.
It is here at our place that David Warther, a fifth generation carver of Swiss heritage, is continuing his family's carving legacy in the center of Ohio's beautiful Amish country.
The carvings created by David are intricately worked of antique ivory, ebony wood and abalone pearl. Each of the 80 works is heavily engraved through the art form known as scrimshaw. David works daily in his on-site workshop where he is creating the "History of the Ship" from 1st Dynasty Egypt, circa 3000 B.C., to the present day. This unique art collection-museum forms an artistic and highly educational exhibit that culturally enriches all who view these extraordinary works of art.
Please take the time to look through our website to better understand the scope of David's work and our vision. We are a non-profit organization chartered with preserving, promoting and exhibiting the artwork of nationally known maritime artist David Warther.
