Jim Silva

Hi there.

I’m Jim Silva and I make a living as a Nantucket Basketmaker and Woodturner. I do many types of woodturning with a particular emphasis on vases and hollowforms as well as my original creations “Nantucket Turnings” which are traditional Nantucket basketweave over hand turned bowls and vessels.

I belong to the AAW (American Association of Woodturners), the President of the Gateway Turners as well as the Vice President of the Cape Cod Woodturners.

If you’re interested in my work, please feel free to visit my turning site Nantucket-Turnings.com or our Nantucket Basketry business Basketryetc.com or find me on Facebook.

Here is a small sample of some of my more recent work.
