[REDHAT7] Adding LVM volume

Dear community,
is it possible to add more volumes to actual LVM disk? I have the following:
Code:
# lsblk
NAME                      MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda                         8:0    0   120G  0 disk 
├─sda1                      8:1    0   500M  0 part /boot
└─sda2                      8:2    0 119.5G  0 part 
  ├─lvm01-root.vol        253:0    0   5.9G  0 lvm  /
  ├─lvm01-swap.vol        253:1    0     4G  0 lvm  [SWAP]
  ├─lvm01-tmp.vol         253:2    0     3G  0 lvm  /tmp
  ├─lvm01-opt.vol         253:3    0     3G  0 lvm  /opt
  ├─lvm01-varlogaudit.vol 253:4    0  1000M  0 lvm  /var/log/audit
  ├─lvm01-varlog.vol      253:5    0  1000M  0 lvm  /var/log
  ├─lvm01-var.vol         253:6    0  47.8G  0 lvm  /var
  └─lvm01-home.vol        253:7    0     3G  0 lvm  /home
sr0                        11:0    1  1024M  0 rom

And I would like to have something like:
Code:
# lsblk
NAME                      MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda                         8:0    0   120G  0 disk 
├─sda1                      8:1    0   500M  0 part /boot
└─sda2                      8:2    0 119.5G  0 part 
  ├─lvm01-root.vol        253:0    0   5.9G  0 lvm  /
  ├─lvm01-swap.vol        253:1    0     4G  0 lvm  [SWAP]
  ├─lvm01-tmp.vol         253:2    0     3G  0 lvm  /tmp
  ├─lvm01-opt.vol         253:3    0     3G  0 lvm  /opt
  ├─lvm01-varlogaudit.vol 253:4    0  1000M  0 lvm  /var/log/audit
  ├─lvm01-varlog.vol      253:5    0  1000M  0 lvm  /var/log
  ├─lvm01-var.vol         253:6    0  47.8G  0 lvm  /var
  ├─lvm01-home.vol         253:7    0  47.8G  0 lvm /home
  ├─lvm01-part1.vol         253:8    0  3G  0 lvm /part1
  ├─lvm01-part2.vol         253:9    0  3G  0 lvm /part2
  └─lvm01-part3.vol        253:10    0     3G  0 lvm  /part3

Thank you
Lucas
