Collection: Andreas Kratschmer

Artist statement:

In my woodturning, I use locally sourced wood with sometimes unpredictable characteristics. By working with green, living wood the material takes an active part in the creative process and invites the maker to reflect on the life of the material itself.

My practice is rooted in a deep appreciation for the tradition of crafts, the cultural history of artifacts and our human interaction with nature. By celebrating urban wood with all its beauty, its flaws, its scars, its fragility, and strength, I hope to deepen our connection with the artifact and the material it is made of.

Imperfections, cracks, warping, and natural impacts, like fire, and signs of human interaction, like tool marks, are deliberately incorporated to create objects that narrate their own past while living on in the cultural context of our homes.
