SPLIT WOOD

Malaysia Tatler Homes - - STYLE -

Cal­i­for­nian de­signer and wood crafts­man Paul Foeck­ler’s Split Grain light sculp­tures meld con­tem­po­rary aes­thet­ics with the raw beauty of un­var­nished wood. “The project be­gan with me tak­ing no­tice of an or­di­nary piece of fire­wood and thinking it too beau­ti­ful to burn. The ex­te­rior tex­ture and shape had such or­ganic ap­peal that I started ex­per­i­ment­ing. I found that dif­fer­ent split­ting tech­niques fol­lowed by saw­ing the form into slices en­hanced the cross sec­tions and re­vealed even more in­cred­i­ble for­ma­tions and im­per­cep­ti­ble grain pat­terns,” says Foeck­ler, whose works have an or­ganic, min­i­mal­ist ap­peal.
