Sean Gillespie

"I love everything about wood; from the distinct qualities of each species to the way it smells when it is carved. My designs feature the innate beauty of wood. Its surprising grain and color variation gives me an inexhaustible source of inspiration."

Gillespie gets his ideas from architectural details, landscapes, people, and music. He takes the world around him, breaks it into raw graphic elements and captures that expression in fine and exotic hardwoods. Each piece of wood is chosen for its singular character, grain, and color.

The work is composed with the lathe, steel, torches, pigment and unconventional use of traditional woodworking tools. Gillespie uses his carving tools like a painter uses a brush. Gestures and strokes create pattern and form.

People might think of wood as tough and solid; actually, it's a living medium, one that moves with the seasons, and the grain is very responsive. The wood records the movement of the artist's hands, capturing the moment of creation.
