Stacking Firewood A Functional Piece Of Art
Can piling logs be an art form? Yes, apparently. There are people out there who arrange huge piles of logs into beautiful pictures that will gradually disappear as they are burned throughout the cold winter months.
It can all seem a bit absurd until you realize that, depending on the type of wood and how they’re cut, logs actually present quite the variety of colors and textures for someone with the patience and the eye to take advantage of them. There are even art galleries that have showcased art like this. If you’ve been inspired to create your own log pile art, share it with us!
Not many people realize that even a stack of wood can be turned into a beautiful artwork or decoration. Improving the interior design or the entire look of a garden is as easy as your imagination lets it. We found this impressive project which can be implemented in every dwelling.
The process is fairly simple in theory. You just stack the pieces of wood that you will eventually use for heating your home in an artistic manner. The practice is a bit harder because it needs patience from you and a perseverance spirit – even if the pieces don’t stick together at first, don’t give up. There are lots of ways you can stack wood and create art in the same time. Go for the `painting` solution and place different colored wood in a way you depict a scene, just like you would in a regular canvas painting.
There are lots of interesting designs you could make, inspiring from nature, trees, animals and birds. If you want a challenge, try and make human portraits; the work of OleKristianKjelling is very inspiring in this regard. Don’t stop at paintings, and try `statues` or all kind of 3-D structures, like an entire fireplace or a tall tower. If you have plenty of wood, you could do a whole house with the stacking method.
And if you like to blend wood in the interior design of your home, you could always fill a hole in the wall (like an unused fireplace for example) to make thedécor more rustic. Browse through the photos to inspire you in this endeavor. The more intricate the design, the harder you will have to work to achieve a nice end-product. But the results will easily impress guests and friends that see your art for the first time.
