The Woodturners Gallery
Benoît Averly turns and carves wood. As he creates his sculptures, he looks carefully at lines and shapes. He likes sharp contrasts, the play of shadows, black and white. Inspired by architecture and the search for sobriety. He builds his pieces of work with precision and sensitivity in a contemporary spirit.
His creations, to be put down or hung on the wall for interior decoration will find their place in modern indoors as well as classic ones.
Benoît works to suit individual requirements and can provide custom made pieces. Feel free to ask for more information about dimensions and prices.
