About the artist:
Delaware wood-turner Michael O'Grady specializes in kitchen accessories made from olive wood. Olive trees are evergreens native to the Mediterranean, Asia and Africa. The growth habit of the trees result in spectacular swirly figure. The majority of the olive wood used by Michael is imported from Bethlehem, Israel. As olive trees require pruning yearly after harvest, non-producing branches are cut to keep the tree healthy resulting in a renewable resource.
