Edward Moulthrop (American/Georgia, 1916-2003) turned burlwood "Glory Bowl," made of highly figured Georgia Pine with dark striations, in a cylindrical form with broad curved and out-turned rim. Signature and inscription to underside: "Ed Moulthrop Georgia Pine Pinus Taeda 017831" with stamped artist's cipher. Measures 12 1/2" diameter x 6 1/4" H. Biography: Ed Moulthrop was a self-taught woodturner, known as the father of modern woodturning. His interest in wood began as a child and he bought his first lathe when he was a teenager. Moulthrop received his undergraduate degree from Case Western Reserve University in Ohio in 1939 and his graduate degree in architecture from Princeton University in New Jersey in 1941. After completing school, he taught architecture at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta and later practiced as an architect. Wood remained a hobby during his time as an architect. In the 1970s, he resigned from architecture to pursue woodturning professionally. Moulthrop was most famous for his large-scale turned bowls, made from domestic woods, usually spherical or elliptical with polished clear finishes and he designed and built most of his equipment to accommodate the large size of his pieces. His work is exhibited in many musuems including the Smithsonian, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Renwick Gallery, White House Collection of American Crafts, and Museum of Arts and Design, among others.
