Велики часовник

“Think of this sculpture as a clock,” says sculptor Paul Baliker from Florida. At the 12:00 hour is bird life, representing the sky. At 3:00 and 9:00 are mammals, representing the land. Working downwards toward the 6:00 hour, through reptiles, amphibians, fish and crustaceans we arrive at the sea turtle that represents the oceans. Man’s position is the timepiece, holding the fate of the planet in his hand. This magnificent and thoughtful driftwood sculpture is an ecological statement and incorporates dozens of endangered species including birds, starfish, eels, crocodiles, hippos, owls, monkeys and wolves sculpted in incredible detail. (A side note, the globe was stolen from this site while on display and Baliker had to sculpt a new one!.)

Скулптура од наплављеног дрвета

Paul Baliker is the artist behind this magnificent driftwood sculptor. It is his beautiful and powerful effort to call attention to the peril that the world’s oceans face.
This stunning and intricately carved piece, which features a variety of sea life swirling around a representation of man and an hourglass, represents the relationship of man and the ecosystem.

Срце дрвета

This gorgeous ‘Tree of Love’ pendant is created by Scottish based wood artist Geoff King.
Geoff creates his pieces from salvaged and reclaimed British hard-woods and his love of nature and trees is mirrored in his beautiful wooden adornments.
‘Tree of Love’ is delicately and lovingly carved from 4.600 year old bog oak with a large piece of Baltic Sea amber.
This is indeed a most unique and exquisite adornment in wood and I so admire the creative mind and skill full hands behind this artwork.

Све што расте, хтело би да расте…

Let it grow
Let it grow
You can’t reap what you don’t sow
Plant a seed inside the earth
Just one way to know it’s worth
Let’s celebrate the world’s rebirth
We say let it grow

Let it grow
Let it grow
Like it did so long ago
Maybe it’s just one tiny seed
But it’s all we really need
It’s time to change the life we lead

Fletcher Sheridan  (Dr. Seuss, The Lorax)


Тако је писао песме Данијел Бјудри


Tree, gather up my thoughts
like the clouds in your branches.
Draw up my soul
like the waters in your root.

In the arteries of your trunk
bring me together.
Through your leaves
breathe out the sky.

J. Daniel Beaudry

Baitogogo is a half-sculptural, half-architectural installation by Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira that presents a surreal growth of tree branches out of white columns. The São Paulo-based artist’s piece offers a unique perspective of indoor design while reminding viewers of the materials used for construction. He presents a structural and organic fusion that plays with one’s sense of space.

Having installed this incredible site-specific piece at Palais de Tokyo in Paris earlier this year, the exhibit states, „Creating a spectacular and invasive Gordian Knot, Henrique Oliveira plays with Palais de Tokyo’s architecture, allowing a work that combines the vegetal and the organic to emerge. The building itself becomes the womb that produces this volume of ‘tapumes’ wood, a material used in Brazilian towns to construct the wooden palisades that surround construction sites.“

Check out the behind the scenes „making of“ video, below, to get a better idea of the installation’s structural composition.
