My greatest satisfaction comes from taking what looks like an ordinary piece of wood and exposing the natural beauty.” —John Mascoll


John Mascoll learned how to use the tools of woodworking from his father, a boatbuilder and carpenter from Barbados. While turning wood in his studio, Mascoll follows the flow of the grain to create elegant vessels, each with its own character.
