About  Barry Gray

Gray has been a woodturner for approximately five years and is always learning, as he said, “learning through turning.”

Most of Gray’s training has come through his membership with the Southern Utah WoodTurners Association in Cedar City.

Most of the wood Gray uses for his artwork is found on the ground, and as professional woodturner Kurt Herzog said, “The magic is not in the tools or in the turners hands. The magic is inside the wood that we turn.”

Gray is also a member of the American Association of WoodTurners and the Las Vegas WoodTurners Association.
