Savannah Stanton grew up exploring the thick coniferous stands of the Pacific northwest. She eventually found herself a student of Wood Science at Oregon State University, fusing her interests in biology and artistic expression. Nine months of the year she works as a high school career technical educator, instructing woodturning, cabinetry, and manufacturing courses. With her passion for learning and background in Wood Science, Savannah loves to challenge students to explore topics through the lens of woodworking. Her current Master’s research is directly related to her work as an artist, with special emphasis on the science behind woodturning tools. Owner of Savannah Stanton, LLC, most of her studio work is wood turned or sculptural in nature. A minimalist when it comes to equipment, her turning tools of choice are primarily skew chisels and traditional bowl gouges thanks to their versatility. Her largest installation to date has been a 5’x6’ intarsia mural that captures the diverse landscapes of western Oregon. When not teaching or woodturning, Savannah can be found turning in a different sense — practicing aerial acrobatics!
