Larry is from the Saint John area, and currently lives in Quispamsis with his wife, Izabell, who is a stone artist.
After a career in engineering and teaching, Larry decided it was time for a new challenge. He has been fascinated with wood most of his adult life and has built furniture and other wood items, with occasional turning in the mix. Although satisfying, Larry was looking for more of a balance between art and craft.He found that balance in wood turning.
“Besides technical skill, turning relies on lines and curves, balanced with feel and finish to produce turned objects that work with the wood, to enhance it’s natural beauty. The choices made, hopefully, produce elegant but functional forms.”
