John Charry

Craftsperson · Sculptor
Born December 24, 1909, Trenton, New Jersey
Died February 8, 2003, St. Albans, Vermont

After retiring in 1974 from teaching at Mercer County Community College in Trenton, NJ, John Charry lived in Vermont with his wife, Jane Charry. Charry's works are crafted in wood, with the occasional use of terra cotta and brass. He emphasized the natural shape and grain of the wood, and used these characteristics to create a well balanced, harmonious composition, whether a serving tray or an abstract sculpture. He worked primarily with walnut and cherry woods, carving them by hand and on a lathe, he would finish with oil to emphasize the rhythm of the grain.
