John Topham is a Summerland fine woodworker. He studied fine arts at the Kootenay School of Art.
The bulk of John's work is utilitarian, using local hardwood trees that have been discarded and salvaged. His contemporary pieces are more frequently crafted through inspiration and motivation.
His work has been sold throughout Canada, the U.S., Caribbean, Europe and Asia and is available at his local studio and the Summerland Community Arts Council Gift Gallery. He currently is instructing wood turning workshops in Mozambique for the local artisans.
