Congratulations you’ve found us! We are the first official blog dedicated to the wondrous woodworking of Wharton Esherick and the happenings at the museum that bears his name! Our goals for this blog are to keep you up to date on what’s going on at the museum, but also to provide more information and access to Wharton and his works. We at WEM want to be a resource to woodworkers, artists, teachers, students, researchers, museum geeks and Esherick enthusiasts, and we’re hoping that this blog will be yet another chance for us to connect with people all over the world who want to learn more about the Dean of American Craft!
The goal is to publish a post once a month that highlights pieces from the collection, happenings at the museum, people Wharton knew, styles he worked in, places he visited and any thing else we think you might find interesting. So stay tuned to this site for what we’re hoping will become an excellent resource to connect Wharton Esherick enthusiasts all over the world and to deepen the connection between the museum staff and all of you as well!
Signing out for now,
