A Dynamic Collective of Local Artists


Windekind Buteau-Duitschaever

Although I enjoy turning utility items such as bowls, pens and pepper mills, I particularly enjoy the challenge associated with turning unusual items, such as elongated burls or sections of severely scared trees and branches, into beautiful decorative art forms. The natural defects in the raw material challenge me to explore new ways to highlight the inherent beauty of the wood within these in the final art piece. 

Windekind is an avid woodturner, woodworker and conservationist. He has been working with wood since he was a child and began to experiment with wood turning in the mid 2000s. Since then, he has developed his own artistic turning style which he continues to develop through experimentation and various studies. 

Windekind’s work has been showcased in special exhibits at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, has been highlighted the House & Home magazine, shown on CTV Your Morning Show, and has numerous pieces located in private collections in North America and Europe.
