I think that triangle table would go well in my dinning room. Might perplex my 3 year old a little though.

I guess it would perplex quite a lot of visitors if you had this in your dinning room! ;o)

Interestingly enough, longtime ago I designed a table along such general lines… minus the ‘organic’ parts, that is. Not yet built but I will some day.

I saw this somewhere a while back. He’s got some skill, no doubt about it. However, my wife would perform unspeakable tortures on me were I to do anything like his stuff. And, to be honest, I’m allergic to torture.

Gotta give the guy huge props for being original, and having some serious carving talent.
I can see something like this being shown in an upscale gallery in NY or LA and commanding
very large quantities of cash.

Thanks for the link.

I agree. Actually if you look at some of the pages you’ll see prices going into the tens of thousands of euros…

I’ve got this neighbor, he’s a 70y/o hippie…and one hell of a wood carver. He does full sized female nudes. You know those carvings showing the “wood spirit”? Yep…He’s found Aphroditie all right. Anyhow, he’s selling out in hopes of moving to Tennessee. Quite an interesting tour but the missus won’t allow me to buy. Bummer.

Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.

the four legs chair reminds me of the mannequin enemy in the silent hill 2 (video game) which, after a quick wiki search, mentions that the mannequin appears to be based on the works of hans bellmer…...which after another google search (hans bellmer dolls), are REALLY creepy.

however, all that aside….this stuff is interesting to say the least. also reminds me of the milk bar in a clockwork orange.

That’s some of the breast sculpting I’ve ever seen.
