Cool Art | Wood & Paper

Guess who's inspired... me! I strongly admire artists who can take a commonly used artistic element and create something clever and unique from it. Like these two sculptors: Dan Webb and Anna-Wili Highfield, who use paper and wood to sculpt magical things.

Dan Webb, a Seattle based artist, makes a rigid and unforgiving material look delicate with intricate detail:



 
 
And former opera set designer Anna-Wili Highfield creates the loveliest animals from what looks like torn paper pieces sewn together. Beautiful :
 



Her works have a fragile quality to them, as if the slightest breeze would dissolve the sculpture.

I'd love one of these paper pieces for my home!

  4. As easy, convenient, and economic it is to work with wood, there are still these downsides to deal with - not to mention potential durability issues when untreated. work sharp 3000

  5. This is the basic reasoning behind wood-drying. (Another trick some carpenters use is to make a preemptive cut that is clean and uniform down the center of the length of larger lumber to relieve the stress.)Custom Wooden signs
