John Van Domelen was introduced to the lathe by his grandfather many years ago, John rediscovered the joy of handcrafting wood items. He uses the lathe as his primary tool, but his work is sometimes done off the lathe. John carves, burns, textures and dyes some pieces in order to further bring forth the beauty in the wood. He is a member of Gulf Coast Woodturners Association, American Association of Woodturners and the Wood Turning Center and has won numerous awards through the GCWA contests. He feels that his residency at HCCC will provide learning opportunities and the framework and structure to explore new ideas and push the envelope on what is considered woodturning.
