November Artist of the Month


  Erwin 'Ernie' Wagenknecht is the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative artist of the month.

  Ernie's specialty is finely crafted wood turnings.  He started woodcrafting in high school, and later taught Industrial Arts, including woodworking and drafting, for fifteen years.  Ernie has been a member of the co-op since May 2014.  Prior to then, he never sold any of his work, so now is the time to purchase the creations of a veteran craftsman.    Ernie has lived in Sebring with his long time significant other since 1995.
