Mikk’s Fine Wood Art
14 October - 16 October
Mikk’s is an active, working studio, where the artist designs and makes Fine Art Objects in Wood.
As an artist in wood, he appreciates the symmetry of turned vessels and the natural complexity, form and colours of the grain structure in wood.
So, he exploits these elements in his wood art, using exotic local hardwoods from Malaysia which he hand shapes through woodturning and carving.
His carvings reflect the organic complexity and beauty of the natural world, while his woodturning generates pieces that display the beauty of the grain structure in wood.
All of his work carving is done by hand using standard traditional woodworking hand-tools and machinery, and he never uses lasers or CNC machines to automate the process.
However, in the last 2 years, during the lockdown period of Covid 19, he has embraced the CNC technology of laser engraving, which enables him to engrave detailed images on wood, canvas, ceramic tiles, mirrors and glass, and even denim material.
He has recently ventured into 3D image engraving and construction which is a world first for this technology.
His studio now houses 5 years of artistic production due to the restrictions of lockdown and movement. A treasure trove of creativity and growth. A reawakening and reemergence from years of enforced isolation.
