Flat is the new round, at least according to South Korean artist Jae-Hyo Lee who creates remarkable wood sculptures using discarded tree trunks. His process on paper sounds simple but it takes a lot more than just polishing pieces of wood to make art that is both elegant and functional. “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.” This guy is like Father Nature or something. Check out a more in depth look at his sculptures below.
