Natural wood art highlights the beauty found in nature. Whether a natural live edge wood slab, a weathered log, or driftwood, natural beauty abounds. But, what makes this natural wood art? It’s an expression or application of human creative skill. It’s a visual art, though not painted but sculpted innately and appreciated for its beauty and emotional power. Inviting and empowering the artist as well as a spectator to explore within that that is within.
Nature wood art
I don’t know about you, but I as the writer enjoy my time outdoors. Whether exploring my backyard, the Sawtooth Mountains, or the beach at Cape San Blas, it’s always anew.
While we predominantly design and handcraft functional, natural wood furniture, we also craft natural wood wall art and sculptures. Each piece is one of a kind and minimally sculpted, bringing out the innate beauty.
With that being said, art’s in the eye of the beholder, as the saying goes. Really, it’s more like does it speak to you or invoke aw or intrigue. I believe art should speak to the soul, but arts also functional furniture. Functional art such as a live edge burl wood platform bed or a trestle-based Redwood burl dining table. Live edge natural wood furniture designs are an expression and application of human creative skill.
Care for your art
But really, it’s impractical to drag a tree stump or gnarly log into your home. Think about it, it will look remarkable in your home, it’s probably a bug or two’s home presently? Always treat for boring wood bugs and never leave the bark on wood.
