David Warther Carvings will be hosting the Christmas Tree festival for Pomerene Hospital this year! The festival starts Monday November 9th and runs through Saturday the 14th. Open from 10 to 7 each weekday and Saturday 10 to 4. There is absolutely no admission charge for this event! Any donation is appreciated and benefits the hospital. 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.
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.
