It’s believed that the first wood carver was Adam. That’s how long wood carving has been practised. Over the centuries wood carving has undergone many changes but has never died. Coaxing a figure out of a root or branch, carving a detailed image, sanding, smoothing, varnishing – these tactile senses come alive under the talented hands of a wood sculptor.
You’ll find some elements of wood in many of the sculptures at DIMENSIONS 2017, but look for the two artists who make wood their primary passion, Anna Zaccardelli and award winning wood sculptor Jim Lawrence.
