No clay today...I AM IN FREAKIN' LOVE with this work...In love with the form, the texture, the process!! (see below).
These sculptures/furniture are made from discarded trees and branches assembled and joined and cut again to form. I won't spoil the process by describing it; you have to watch the videos for yourself. WOW is all I can say!
Lee also creates with calcified wood and handmade nails.
The South Korean artist explains his motivation...“I want to express the wood’s natural characteristics without adding my intentions. I like to make the most out of the material’s inherent feeling. Little things add up to transmit a stronger power, greater energy. That is why I have quite a lot of large pieces.”http://www.boredpanda.com/discarded-wood-sculptures-jae-hyo-lee/ (photos and video)
