The fascination of old wood

You are on a walk in the forest, surrounded by tall trees and the smell of nature and wood. If you close your eyes, you might hear the trees whispering. This is exactly the whisper that artists listen to when working with reclaimed wood to understand its natural identity.

You are on a walk in the forest, surrounded by tall trees and the smell of nature and wood. If you close your eyes, you might hear the trees whispering. This is exactly the whisper that artists listen to when working with reclaimed wood to understand its natural identity.

Working with old wood means making it as natural as possible. Therefore, in this rural craft, it is necessary to have a keen eye and a certain affinity and respect for the wood. Each type of wood has its characteristics: from quality and grain to shape and durability. Thus, there are endless possibilities in the creation of works of art and there are no limits to creativity and interpretation.

 

The unique pieces are often created depending on shapes and patterns that are already present in the wood. These features are made visible and highlighted with love. Through the gentle processing of the pieces of wood, the character of each piece is preserved in the best possible way. For this purpose, brushes or various hand cutting tools are used. It is precisely through the proximity to this raw material of our earth that unique pieces are created, which are indeed like no other and reflect nature in its entirety. So the forest ends up directly in your home.
