David Warther Carvings represent one man’s dedication to create a body of artwork for the benefit of the visiting public and his native community.
David Warther’s work is a collection of intricately carved miniatures that depict sailing ships from ancient Egypt, circa 3000 B.C. to modern times. The collection, now numbering over 80 ship carvings, is a highly educational exhibit of maritime history. When on public display, David’s exhibit of carvings has been seen by visitors from around the globe who have been inspired by the striking beauty of his artwork.
Carving from antique ivory and ebony wood, David’s works are designed using blueprints and drawings furnished by maritime scholars and researchers worldwide. Visitors are especially intrigued by the ivory rigging. Each line is made of ivory that has been hand filed to seven thousandths of an inch (.007″) in diameter and then masterfully applied to the ship carving. David developed this hand filing and sanding technique for making “ivory threads” at the age of 13, and has perfected it over the years.
