Wood as Contemporary Art

Schutte Lumber Company’s customers are not only remodelers, contractors, and do-it-yourself types, they are also artists, as our post about a stunning handcrafted wooden kayak demonstrated. We found another great example of wood as contemporary art on the Contemporist blog.

This amazing wood sculpture, “Purple Horizon,” was created by Canadian artist Dave Hogg from purple heart pine. He also has created a cedar version, “Cedar Horizon.” View these and other imaginative wood sculptures in Dave’s portfolio, and check out his inspiring custom wood fencing.

Send us your woodworking project photos and a brief description, and you could be featured on our blog too! Entries may be e-mailed to Stacy Fyock at S_Fyock@SchutteLumber.com.
