Meet Steve Pritchard
Steve’s lifelong passion for woodworking led them to discover woodturning in 2000, a craft that he’s become addicted to as an art form. Steve believes that every piece of wood is unique and possesses a unique personality and appeal, much like nature itself. Steve advocates for responsibly sourced lumber, emphasizing the importance of cherishing rather than depleting these natural treasures. In a small way, Steve is preserving the majesty of nature’s beauty in each of his products.
Steve’s greatest joy lies in revealing this inner beauty, where the process of shaping wood is as enjoyable as the final product. He finds joy in the hiss of the wood and his instruments, appreciating each unique moment. While sometimes getting lost in the art of shaping wood, Steve always remembers the importance of preserving the tree’s lifelong effort to develop its unique qualities.
The Pop Up Arts Shop is the place for amazing one-of-a-kind gifts created by local artists. Each month the CAC features a different artist that works with varying mediums. All items are under $75 so be sure to stop by the CAC for some amazing arts and crafts before they’re gone! The Cultural Arts Council is located at 8652 Campbellton Street in historic downtown Douglasville and is open Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5 pm.
