Wood’s rich and earthy colors exhibit graceful grain. Its smooth and durable surfaces shelter us, bring us comfort and beauty. Wood carries a wide range of hues and textures, soft or rough, smooth or cracked surfaces. Its fine or wild rings reflect histories of droughts and floods. It breathes and expands. It turns its infestations into beautiful variations of color and form. Wood may be one of the oldest and most common art materials, central to human creativity and long used on every continent to create functional, ceremonial and decorative pieces.
