This is mindblowing. Randall Rosenthal crafts these works out of a block of pine wood, by chipping away and hollowing out different sections, he is able to create the illusion that it is a box containing money or magazines. A skill like woodworking takes years and Rosenthal has invested that time to be a certifiable […]
Missouri born, Jason Houchen creates fantastically intricate wood-burnings. I especially love the use of the cigar bands in his work. After graduating in Sculpture, he relocated to LA where he discovered highly influential classical folk art, street, and a burgeoning pop surrealism art scene. Through his wood burnings, sculptures, mixed media and paintings, he has […]
A fallen oak meets sleek design in the Fallen Tree bench, created by designer Benjamin Grain-Dorge. On one side, he supports the bench with branches that are virtually unaltered. On the other, a simple piece of glass. The way he’s found a balance between the two is astounding.
Antoni Tudisco, a self-taught 3D digital artist, might only be 21, but his amazing portfolio will leave you impressed and wanting more. His latest works include amazing wooden donuts and golden burgers. The secret to his success: practice, practice, practice.
Tom Eckert creates these unbelievable hyperrealistic sculptures out of, you guessed it, wood. He makes his art using traditional wood carving methods, and then he paints them to ensure maximum realism. Eckert’s wood sculptures take hyperrealism to a whole new level.
Venetian artist Livio De Marchi sculpts fascinating and extremely realistic replicas of daily objects, turning them from ordinary to extraordinary. His pieces look so life-like that you’d mistake them for the real thing, like his sculpture of a hanging leather jacket. De Marchi earned instant fame after the completion of his House of Books, which […]

Biomimetic fashion apparel from discarded pieces of plywood, laser-cut with precision and stitched onto unbleached organic cotton. Who would have thought?
Earlier this year I began a blog as a day to day document of my time designing and working with wood. The photographs that I use for the blog are all recurring subjects: wood, studio, light.
At first glance, A.J. Fosik’s animal head sculptures look as if they were made of simple paper, when in actuality each is made of wood, carved and colored in vibrant shades of green, blue, red and pinks. Each has its own energy, power and intricacies that envelope and hypnotize the viewer.
The work of Brooklyn artist Cosme Herrera is beautiful, subtle and imbued with a deep sense of meaning. ‘As I constantly question man-made constructs, I search for a universal language’, he says. ‘Through this body of work, I seek to define my own logos.

Their rings, like an analogical language, tell the story of the tree’s experience through starvation, growth, long winters and wet springs’.
