Bert Marsh

Bert was known throughout the woodturning world as a talented turner, inveterate story-teller, and mentor for many of today’s top turners. He was honored by the AWGB in 2009 with Honorary Life Membership for his services to woodturning.

“From an early age, I have felt a profound need to work with wood; I love the material passionately. There is no complex philosophy attached to my work I do; I am simply striving to achieve the perfect form, the purest possible curves expressed in simple, uncluttered shapes that will expose the beauty of the wood to the full. In seeking that goal I find my inspiration in many everyday objects, but most of all I am inspired by the wood itself.”
