Frenchman Pascal Oudet want to reproduce wood’s individuality almost poetic. He uses including a careful sandblasting to obtain a tip like shape which can be ascertained from the tree throughout history.

For the most part, I have a clear idea of what I want to create, and then I look for a piece of wood to get there. My objects are born while I work, but it is only part of creation. The tools have never a limit, only your imagination.

How can it look like when a electrical engineer working with wood? Since 15 years have Pascal explored the possibilities of timber and the result is magnificent. Based in Grenoble in the French Alps, he met a lot of his favorite materials exposed to the weather. Inspired by old wood, he has created the collection Sand, with thinly sliced through the wood, almost like lace. He is technically very skilled; lathe, sand blaster and a variety of cutting tool is his tool. Parts of the collection Sand we will show at Konsthantverkarna during the period 28 May to 17 June.
