Gary Glibbery was born in Surrey, England and moved with his family to Southern California when he was a child, where he was raised. He currently lives in Lake Arrowhead with his wife and daughter. His creative passion began in grade school with scratch built model boats. Continuing to hone his woodworking skills, he has earned awards for his Gloucesterman Schooner and Tugboat models, as well as Best of Show several times.
Gary enjoys working in a variety of artistic disciplines such as pyrography, wood carving, furniture making, metal sculpting and building industrial style lighting. Gary finds inspiration for his pyrography and carvings, from the natural beauty of wildlife and nature found in Lake Arrowhead and the surrounding areas.
Gary is an avid collector of antique hand tools, which he prides himself in using to create his unique functional Art pieces. HIs expertise in using these "old school" traditional methods and tools gives him the satisfaction of following in the footsteps of craftsmen of the past, and of keeping alive what soon could be a lost art.
Working with reclaimed lumber that he rescues, Gary enjoys creating one of kind pieces that highlight the unique characteristics and quality of reclaimed wood. His goal is to create pieces that clients can display to enhance their decor or simply enjoy as a piece of Art.
