Made by Contexture from reclaimed architectural veneer offcuts….
These here are bentwood rings, wedge-shaped bands made with contrasting Benge and Maple layers. Also made with reclaimed architectural veneer offcuts glued cross grain for strength -from Contexture
Wood and Nautilus ring from Coco Loco Jewelry
Or you can have a beautiful parure of Koa Wood and Bone jewelry, shaped into plumerias, the flower of Hawai’i.
(I do have the three above-i with chord ties instead of clasps, which I think are more in harmony with the wood-…watercolor coming soon:))
3. You can take a hint from the Renassaince painters and make a painting made in wood.
4. You can use a barrel (!) and make furniture with it – give it up for local San Diego artists:) Check out barrellymadeit.com, their store is located in my very own neighborhood of Hillcrest, Uptown San D.
Do you know of other interesting use of wood in architecture, art, furniture and industrial design?
Do share! I will keep updating this post.
