Laura Burkhart drew inspiration from the Pacific Northwest’s mountains, lakes, and trees – and used it to develop a refreshing, unique style of artwork.
“Woodwork is such a physically demanding medium, forcing me to fully immerse myself in the process. This particular style came to fruition a few years ago when I was asked to help design and create the interior of a friend’s local coffee shop. I wanted to take my own approach to the craft that brought in my love for surface pattern with a sculptural element. I’m intrigued by the juxtaposition between the hard lines and the stark contrast of shapes against the fluidity of the wood grain. I love the way the work celebrates nature’s geometry and symmetry.”
