Larry Katz

Residing in Ottawa, Larry Katz has gained a reputation in

Canada and beyond as an accomplished woodturner.

Following early retirement as National Research director with

the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Larry has now been

turning for more than a decade. Working mainly with domestic

woods from already downed trees in Eastern Ontario and

Western Quebec, he creates beautifully formed and finished

bowls, platters, and assorted other turnings. Particular attention

is paid to both form and functions and displaying the grain patterns and life history of trees in an aesthetically pleasing way.


Larry is an active member of the Ottawa Valley Woodturners, where he has mentored, taught and fulfilled executive functions for many years. He is also a professional member of the Ontario Crafts Council and the American Association

of Woodturners. Larry’s work is sold in galleries in Eastern Ontario and Toronto

and he also regularly shows his work at craft and artisan fairs.
