George Jones III began the craft of woodturning 14 years ago. Since then he has studied with a number of internationally renowned wood artists, and for six consecutive years studied at the Arrowmount School of the Arts in Gatlinburg, TN. Exposure to artists working in other media at the school has allowed George to develop a unique perspective by incorporating some of these techniques in his work. Each of the artist’s pieces is unique, from bowls to wall art and tell a story.
It is his hope that the love and fulfillment from creating each piece is apparent and brings enjoyment to those who see them. George became a member of the American Association of Woodturners and Capital Area Woodturners in 2002, and is a current board member of the Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 227.
