When Master Woodworker Doug Pisik came in last week to discuss his sculpture, he brought with him three intricately assembled boxes.
One work was composed of five blocks stacked on top of each another — with multiple geometric patterns on each side. Pisik calculated that the patterns can create over 3 million different combinations.
Pisik’s avoids dyes and stains when creating color in his pieces. He continuously searches for woods with naturally contrasting colors and tones to accent his creations.
“It’s almost like a geode sometimes, when you cut into it and suddenly you discover something you didn’t expect,” said Pisik about finding vibrant colors in the fallen trees he cuts into.
The self-taught artist will showcase his works this weekend at the American Craft Show.
You can see his wooden creations at the Cobb Galleria Centre starting Friday, March 15 through Sunday afternoon.
