Marc Lamm - the Art of Wood
I work with wood like a painter works with oils and a sculptor with stone.
The lines and shapes in my art are the natural colors of solid wood joined along curves. No inlays, veneers, dyes or stains are used.
Each piece is carved to create shapes and textures and finished with modified tung oil which makes it durable and easy to clean.
My art has life. From a distance, lines, shapes, contours and shadows are easily seen. If you move side to side, the images change with the change in perspective. If a light source moves, shadows in the piece move with it like the sun moving across a landscape.
As you approach the piece, shallow contours appear like swells on a lake while the nature of intricate patterns emerge.
You will be drawn to touch the silk-smooth undulating surface. The modified tung oil finish allows that.
Please note: some of these features cannot be conveyed in a photo. They must be seen in person to be appreciated.
