Evoking clouds and wispy trails of smoke, hunks of gnarled driftwood emerge from Jonah Meyer’s sculptures. The Hudson Valley-primarily based artist carves modest cabins with easy siding and very small doorways that directly contrast the twisted branches and knobby bark that look to billow from their chimneys. Initially conceived in 2008, the works seize the relationship concerning the purely natural and human-created and comprise the artist’s Improved Properties sequence, which he started though constructing a household in the Catskills.

In addition to his apply, Meyer is also powering the household furniture brand Sawkille Co. You can find more of his sculptures on his web site.
