Born in 1964 in St. Georges de Beauce, Claude-Félix Pomerleau settled in 1995 in Saint-Benoît-Labre, Quebec. In 1984, he graduated as a machinist and over the years perfected his craft. In 2006, he created his first art piece: a chess game. Using noteworthy metals such as brass and aluminium, he brings manual finishing touches using a conventional milling and turning machine. In 2007, he is named finalist in a TV show on entrepreneurship, namely VoirGRAND.tv. Then in 2011, at an art contest organized by the Marius Barbeau Museum, a local museum, he receives an honorable mention by the judges.
Over the years, Claude-Felix took part in a number of local art shows such as “Le Salon des Artistes et des Artisans de Beauce”, “La belle tournée”, “Le village en art” and so on.
Designer, inventor, innovator, do-it-yourselfer…Claude-Felix always wants to create things branded with his point of view. Being an avid chess player and not finding any game that was up to his standards in 2006, he decided to build his own with brass and aluminium. In a blink of an eye, his everyday workshop quickly became a design and art studio. Although he uses automated tools and machines to shape each piece, none are completed digitally. Smitten, his hobby turns into a passion and he passes countless hours creating esthetic yet useful art pieces. His portfolio holds a plethora of inventive and distinctive products which in turn, makes him a true original.
