We love any project that uses reclaimed wood, and I'm totally digging this super sweet reclaimed wood art from Olga Oreshyna. I love the textures and colors of these pieces!
Olga contacted us to tell us a bit about her work:
The source of my inspiration comes from abandoned pieces of wood. In my imagination I give them a second chance of the life [...] Rather than cutting down trees to get the needed material, reusing wood is just as good if not better. This is my way of making a difference, at the same time I’m sharing a positive message on how we can recycle and reuse in creative ways.
My artworks reflect my contribution to make our fragile environment more healthy and beautiful. So much plastic, metal, concrete surround us in our everyday life. Creating these amazing wooden structures I feel huge energy coming over my hands. I wish people could see the beauty of nature, energy and warmth of the sun in every piece of wood I use. As for me, it’s like a hidden treasure witch I discover almost every day.I want to make any space they inhabit warm, comfortable and stylish at the same time.
I tend to gravitate toward bright colors when it comes to art and design, but I think my favorite pieces of hers are like the one above, where she plays off of the wood's natural personality. Just stunning! You can check out more of Olga's art on her website.
