Mixed Mosaic

  • Philip Moulthrop, Mixed Mosaic, not dated, pine, mimosa, oak, pear and cherry, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Jeffrey Bernstein, M.D. and Judith Chernoff, M.D., 2021.66.29

Philip Moulthrop grew up watching his father turn wood. His father, Ed Moulthrop, happened to be one of the most influential artists in the contemporary woodturning movement in the United States. Philip worked closely with his father and then cut his own path in the field with his signature mosaic bowls. Mixed Mosaic is made from several kinds of trees, all sourced in Georgia. The artist first encases individual medallions of wood in resin, then turns the block of resin into a bowl. Philip’s son, Matthew, continues the family’s talent for turning.
