Brian Schofield is a turned wood artist based in Martintown Ontario, his work can be found in private collections around the world. Introduced to working with wood when he was 6 years old, his passion for wood throughout his life has led to using the wood lathe to create. Brian has studied wood artists from Canada, the U.S.A. and Great Britain. The newest addition to his repertoire is making custom wood hats, which will be offered during the tour.
“The colour and grain of different woods along with the elegance of shape and form has always intrigued me. My goal is to enhance the work of nature by bringing out the hidden beauty of the wood while striving for esthetically pleasing forms that capture the eye, and spark the viewers curiosity.”
