David Warther Carvings is now open !
Visitors are enjoying the new 10,000 square foot art exhibit as well as the unique and large gift shop at the DWC. Located on top of Square Hill between Sugarcreek and Walnut Creek Ohio on State Route 39, DWC is putting the finishing touch on the major building project by adding a 30 foot tall clock tower,complete with observation deck, to the brand new facility that opened May 4th, 2013. The clock tower is under construction and should be complete by mid June.
David Warther II, a fifth generation carver of Swiss heritage, is continuing his family's carving legacy in the center of Ohio's beautiful Amish country.
The carvings created by David depict the "History of the Ship" from 1st Dynasty Egypt, circa 3000 B.C., to the present day, and collectively form an artistic and highly educational exhibit that culturally enriches not only the people of this community but all who view these extraordinary works of art. With over 75 major pieces in his collection, David carves daily in his workshop to add to this unique and amazing display.
Please take the time to look through our website to better understand the scope of David's work and our vision. We are a non-profit organization chartered with preserving, promoting and exhibiting the artwork of nationally known maritime artist David Warther II.
