Jean-François Delorme learned the trade of wood turning, and went on to work as a turner with a focus on production. From 1990, after training with diverse artists, he also began to exhibit individual items in ceramics and glass. The French Association of Wood-Turning Art (AFTAB) encouraged him to stop working on wood turning production to focus on the creation of individual items too. Since then, he has explored the possibilities created by repeating the same bowl in two or three materials to see the contrast in materials, textures and lighting.
The Center for Art In Wood
The Center for Art in Wood grew out of a series of symposia and exhibitions held between 1976 and 1986. The organizers of these events were the LeCoff brothers, Albert and Alan, and Palmer Sharpless, a woodworker and teacher at the George School, who are credited with helping to spur the "field" of wood turning.
