We would like to introduce you to the Plumier Foundation, the only 501c3 organization in the world dedicated to preserving the extraordinary discipline of Ornamental or Complex Turning and educating craftsmen about it.

We pursue our craft at a level first practiced in The Renaissance, when Kings, queens and nobles used the lathe to create masterpieces. Even turning out ordinary objects, their work was at a level thought to emulate God’s creative actions. They naturally believed that abiding by such standards would make them better rulers.

If you have highly developed skills we have exceptional equipment for you to extend yourself on. Think of a month to six month visiting master role balancing your own work with some teaching days.

“The entire object of true education is to make people not merely do the right things, but enjoy them.”
