CARVED BY NATURE III

San Francisco artist, Lutz Hornischer states that this sculpture was inspired by rock formations, and the natural weathering and erosion of the landscape. The soft and smooth surface of the sculpture gives the impression that it was formed and polished by nature, wind, and water, over many years. It is actually made from more than 47 layers of reclaimed redwood board, sourced from old construction beams, creatively laminated and doweled together. The artist then carved the wood, creating a flowing relief and rugged surface, while playing with the wood grain and natural colors of the different layers of wood. Every piece of wood is like a person, with its unique character, challenges, and strengths. Lutz yearns to give the wood a new life, and hopes that his sculptures inspire people to find new awareness, purpose, and joy in their own lives. His art should also set an example that sustainability and reuse of materials is not just a necessity, but a beautiful and inspiring part of our existence, and future. This sculpture is for sale at $11,000.
