Creating this Website

Creating this website felt like creating a work of art – and that is exactly what we feel this website has become as we share the stories of Yvette Moore, her family and all the artisans we showcase in our incredible historical building. Take your time as you browse through all the pages and especially the videos of 11 of our artisans as they welcome us all into their studios and display the passion of what makes them create their works, tell their stories. With the support of Tourism Saskatchewan, we feel that we have accomplished what we were striving for – to educate our viewers about the creative space that our artisans live and breath in as they passionately hand make their works of art.

After retirement, Don Uteck and his family returned to Saskatchewan and took up residence in Lafleche; a small town in the south central area of the province. As a hobby, Don always enjoyed working with wood, especially creating furniture and toys. Don had previously done some woodturning and decided to further pursue it. After purchasing a used lathe and tools, Don got some wood and the rest, as they say, is history.

Completely self-taught, Don utilized books, videos and ideas from the internet to catapult his ideas into the work he now creates. Having tried all forms of turning, Don’s focus is mainly on Segmented Turning; which is his true passion. As the skill level increased, so did the need for better equipment and tools, which in turn increased the quality of work produced, as evidenced by the beautiful pieces of art he creates.

Some pieces, such as bowls, boxes, and vases are turned from solid wood—much of which are local trees saved from landfills. Many of his vases and bowls that have been made with Saskatchewan woods had been purchased by the former Premier of Saskatchewan, Brad Wall, to be given as special gifts to dignitaries from around the world.

Enjoy this creative catalogue of work by Don Uteck.
