Robert Gochnauer

Lancaster’s own Robert Gochnauer creates bowls and vases in all sizes using wood from many local sources, including trees felled on the Franklin & Marshall campus, Overlook Golf Course, and Manheim Township Parks.  He compares woodworking to pottery, with an exception: “With clay, you can reshape your work if you don’t like how it looks. With wood, you have to start over.

Robert is a member of the American Association of Woodturners, the Susquehanna Woodturners Club, the Philadelphia Wood Turning Center, and the Lancaster Area Woodturners.

John Kline

Lancaster native John Kline has been creating custom finish projects for over 38 years. From start to finish, his attention to detail restores each piece of creative furniture to a state of modern perfection.

John’s passion lies in bringing new life to any disregarded furnishings, whether they’re vintage, modern, or anything in between. Redesigned radio cabinets are among his favorite projects to work on—he converts them into lighted storage units or mp3/radio devices.

Ed Pfoutz

The traditional central-Pennsylvanian wood carvings of Ed Pfoutz are a Lancaster-area favorite, and we have been lucky to have his animal and nature-inspired carvings made from reclaimed wood in our store! Ed was raised near the Susquehanna River, spent his summers on the Conowingo Pond, and immersed himself in nature. He allows the wood grain on his driftwood and reclaimed wood pieces to show through on his carvings instead of painting them to maintain their rustic nature.

Driftwood Birdhouse $35,  Chickadee Song Bird $20

 

 

 

Richard Gaston

Photographer Richard Gaston surrounds himself with local sights (like  the view of the Silk Mill from his back yard) that he can’t help but photograph the way our city has evolved over the years. “I’m sure I look like a perpetual tourist, but it’s worth it.” He is currently showing full-color and black and white framed, matted photographs of locally loved sights (Prince St Cafe, Stan’s Records) as well as views of Lancaster in the past (the recently closed Pop Express, the tower of the Umbrella Works at 250 W. King St, Watt & Shand, Silkmill, etc).
