Frank Ditomaso

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we have had to say goodbye to woodturning artist, and friend, Frank Ditomaso. Frank created beautiful functional and artistic turned wood objects. We invite you to read through Frank's bio, and browse the images of his work as we remember this great man.

We Remember Frank


Frank Ditomaso retired to the Uxbridge area in 2002 which allowed him to concentrate on furniture making and woodturning. Since then, woodturning has become Frank's primary focus as it allows him a broader range of expression and has become more play than work.

2020 was to be Frank's 8th year on the tour, the first 5 as a guest artist of Francis Muscat and the last three as a site artist.

Frank told us "I have always had a great reverence for wood, whether in its natural forest form, a well-made tool, a thoughtful piece of furniture or a beautiful turned object. No man-made object has the feel of wood, nothing gives back the warmth of the hand like wood".

Frank will be dearly missed.
