Craftsmanship Across the Board
Rudolph Lopez began his relationship with wood over 42 years ago as a craftsman of fine furniture and cabinetry. With an education in drafting and design and many years working as a professional photographer, the transition into woodturning has been a seamless flow into another creative endeavor. He has demonstrated at regional and national symposia across the country. Rudolph’s work has been featured in several American Association of Woodturners juried exhibitions at national symposiums and the AAW Gallery of Wood Art in St. Paul, Minnesota. He received the Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts Emerging Artist Award in 2009 and chosen by the AAW as one of four international emerging artists of 2012.
