CUSTOM, NATURAL & UNIQUE WORKS OF ART FROM WOOD
Adrian Stanciu has been using his architectural design background to create wooden works of art for the past 25 years.
Wood gives him the opportunity to combine art, creativity, and construction, while releasing the unique beauty only mother nature can create. Recognizing the environmental impact of deforestation, Adrian strives to utilize salvaged wood whenever possible. Most of his larger turnings (bowls, vases, and hollow forms) come from trees that are dead or diseased and would otherwise be destined for the fireplace. He finds special joy rescuing these woods, giving the trees a second life, and allowing numerous individuals to appreciate the inner beauty for countless years to come. To further the conservation goal, nested bowls are actually cored from a single piece of wood, resulting in additional bowls rather than shavings. With wood’s natural variations, a lifetime of work won’t come close to exhausting the endless possibilities. Though some of the shapes may be recreated, due to the uniqueness of the material, no two wood pieces are the same.
My work has been featured in several stores and galleries in Colorado, including Denver, Pueblo, Manitou and Colorado Springs.
