Meet the Artists: Claude LeBel
Claude LeBel has been turning wood for over six years. He is an active member of the Valley Woodturners in Ottawa and has acted as an assistant instructor for the beginner’s woodturning course offered by the club.
Having studied under world-renowned woodturners such as Mike Mahoney and Jimmy Clewes, Claude is passionate about his hobby. His artistic flare adds to the beauty and uniqueness of his creations. Form and function are important elements in his designs. He believes that not only should his creations be nice to look at, they should be used and enjoyed as well.
With just over six years experience, Claude considers his passion for woodturning a “work in progress”. However the beauty and creativity of his pieces would suggest otherwise.
You can find Claude's work at Uniquely Goulbourn: Spring Art Show & Sale on Sunday May 27, 2012, from 1-4.
