SplitGrain, Split Wood Lights and Sculptures

View all 10 Photos

From Paul Foeckler’s aptly-named Split Grain brand of lighting / sculptures comes a simplistic but wholly intriguing set of illuminating pieces, all of them carved from California cypress. The first of these wooden set pieces towers up with monolithic presence, peculiar notched spaces creating an almost runic appearance as they glow from a hidden power source. Yet another sculpture is supported by steel, forming a reticulated spine from the unique contours of the tree, transforming mere lumber into strange, fossilized remains on display. Both techniques not only serve to show the vivid patterns of the cypress, but a form of frozen vertical and horizontal movement that each tree might have had.
