Michael Gibson

   






In his early years growing up in England, Michael worked on wooden sailing yachts along the banks of the River Crouch. He moved to the US in the eighties and began a career as a finish carpenter and later a home builder. Working with wood all of his life, Michael was always interested in woodturning and studied for many years to perfect his craft.  What began as a hobby blossomed into a passion.  Michael and   Cynthia launched their collaborative journey in 2008. Michael turns and carves the vessels and Cynthia creates beautiful pyro-engraved and textured surface embellishments. The couple has gained international recognition for their highly embellished teapots.
Michael and Cynthia were featured demonstrator at the American Association of Woodturners International Symposium in 2013 and received high honors as recipients of the “Award of Excellence” for one of their pieces.  they have demonstrated for numerous chapters of the AAW and have been feature demonstrators in several States symposiums. 
The Gibsons are in high demand as teachers and their wonderful techniques are taught to students from around the world. During the next several years the Gibsons are scheduled to teach in Canada, Norway,  and New Zealand as well as throughout the United States. They have taught in workshops, chapter classrooms and in private settings. Their work has been published in many journals nationally and internationally.
The artwork created by this duo has garnered the attention of many collectors and has been included in corporate and private collections. Their work is sought after by high end galleries and gift shops throughout the world.
