Friday Faves: A Walk in the Woods

25 May

I’ve made no secret here of how enamored I am by trees.  There is just something so inherently beautiful within the elements of a tree, it isn’t any wonder than artists whose work utilizes wood possess such natural grace and elegance.  Here are a few of my favorites!

Nestler series by Grant Ward, maple burl, spun aluminum
& padauk, 19×8

Cleave series by Joe Segal, 9×18

Cities and Signs by Evan Blackwell, wood, 26x22x2

A Lightness in Being, Exercises in Zen #2 by Christian Burchard, madrone burl, 12x12x26

Featured image is Untitled ( Birds on a Wire ) by Evan Blackwell, mixed media, 8×11.75×2.75.  All images are via the artist’s websites, linked above.
