Guy Du Toit is a wood artist living in Keri Keri NZ who creates unique and bespoke fine art pieces in rare native timbers.
His fine wood art includes sculptures, jewellery, wood turned art pieces and traditional wood turned objects. Guy was born in South Africa and emigrated to New Zealand in 2015.
From the first moment he put a gouge to wood Guy understood that the wood was taking him on a journey and a new passion had been discovered. He found himself instantly enamoured and fascinated by wood turning and discovered a natural talent.
This talent lead him to be accepted to study at Ecole Escoulen wood turning school in France in 2018, as one of only 11 students in the full time course.
"Like all crafts," says Guy, "wood art and wood turning is a continuous journey of learning and discovery. I am always learning more and I’m loving the journey!"
