Bent-Wood Sculptures

Loondance Gallery has sold many original bent-wood sculptures by Eric Tardif, to an appreciative public.
A new work. "The Nest", was selected for the international exhibition Birds in Art 2012, at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wisconsin, from September 8 to November 11, 2012. In all, 125 artists around the world were selected, including three Canadian artists: Eric Tardif, Chris Bacon and Robert Bateman.

In 2013, for a second consecutive year, the most recent artwork of Eric Tardif, Tribute to Audubon, was selected by Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum.


Éric Tardif makes use of a sophisticated form of steam-bending to express his passion for birds in the Canadian wilderness - geese, herons and swans. Employing exclusively North American woods, black walnut, red elm and Canadian maple, he slowly steam-bends millimeter-thin blades of wood into graceful, dynamic shapes.
