(July, 2020) Woodturner John Furniss — who goes by “The Blind Woodsman” — shares his story of losing his sight as a teenager then finding his calling as an artist.
John Furniss creates wood-turned vessels in the Washougal, Washington studio he shares with his wife, painter Anni Furniss. Navigating crises through art, plus a chance meeting involving wet paint and a piano, has led them to a life of creativity and gratitude.
