Kansas woodworker Don Gauthier, known for his finely crafted furniture, will be at Grovewood Gallery on February 17 & 18 in conjunction with the National Arts & Craft Conference at The Omni Grove Park Inn. Gauthier will have a variety of tables, cabinets, and chests on display and available for sale and will also welcome custom orders. A craftsman for 45 years, Gauthier creates work that incorporates his own vision and style with other details often seen in Arts and Crafts and Greene and Greene furniture. He enjoys working with native Kansas hardwoods (primarily maple, cherry and walnut) and occasionally incorporates ceramic tiles into his pieces, a throwback to his previous life as a ceramicist. All furniture is designed for everyday use and handcrafted in Gauthier’s Kansas studio.
