David Warther Carvings

Welcome to

Come and view the work of  David Warther, a fifth generation carver of Swiss heritage, who is continuing his family's carving legacy in the center of Ohio's beautiful Amish country.

The carvings created by David are intricately worked of antique ivory, ebony wood and abalone pearl. Each of the 90 works (and counting!) is heavily engraved through the art form known as scrimshaw. David works daily in his on-site workshop where he is creating the "History of the Ship" from 1st Dynasty Egypt, circa 3000 B.C., to the present day. This unique art collection-museum forms an artistic and highly educational exhibit that culturally enriches all who view these extraordinary works of art.
