About The Artist
George retired from the army in 2017 after a 33 year career and after a course with the master wood turner, Stuart Mortimer, who has continued to mentor and encourage him to this day. George became a full time turner in 2018 and turned professional in 2019 when he launched Butterwood to put his passion on a more businesslike footing. Following an assessment, he was invited to join the Register of Professional Turners in September the same year. He is based in the Avon Valley between Salisbury and Marlborough and has never been happier or felt more fulfilled.
