David Warther Carvings is open in the wintry months with an unusual schedule. We are located atop Square Hill which is known for bad weather in the winter so we do close whenever there is a wintry blast that makes it hazardous for folks to visit. You can always check with us by calling 330-852-6096. With that in mind we are open from January thru March on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 to 4. We will be open on Martin Luther King Day and Presidents Day. We are oftentimes open on the other weekdays and will make sure we are there if you call ahead to let us know you want to stop. Our number is 330-852-6096.
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.
