Keith Plumley moved to Tofino in Clayoquot Sound in 1990 from Ontario where he had already been painting, woodcarving and wood turning for 15 years. When Keith met with the awe inspiring spirit of Clayoquot Sound’s old growth forests, he evolved his wood turning skills and modified his lathe to be able to create larger turned works, up to 3 feet across. He wanted his work to suggest the monumental size and spirit of these ancient trees. This stunning piece is from a red cedar burl estimated to be anywhere from 800+ years old.
