Originally from the UK, Elise McLauchlan fell upon woodturning on a whim when she decided to return to study Furniture Design at the Cass School of Art and Architecture in London. Having grown increasingly fascinated by the beautiful symmetry achieved on the lathe (a piece of machinery used to shape wood into cylindrical profiles,) Elise embodies a more artistic approach to the traditional craft of woodturning. When observing her body of work, you realize that form is never sacrificed at the expense of function and vice versa. Now working out of a small studio in Victoria, BC, Elise emphasizes working with locally sourced woods and constantly pushes the boundaries of shapes she can achieve on the lathe.
