WIT Presents: Jay Heryet

Saturday, May 6, 2023 | 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time

 Jay Heryet’s often witty and always meticulously detailed work has been exhibited in the United Kingdom and United States. She’s been a woodturner since she discovered a lathe during a woodworking course in New Zealand, and since that time, the turning process and its creative possibilities have continued to engage her; charged with a fascination for the medium, driven to create curves which she sees, hears and feels. 

Jay has exhibited and taught across the UK, and in the US and Ireland. She is the first woman to chair the Register of Professional Turners, a position she has held since 2021.
