Item details

Gradient Moss: Reclaimed wood wall art

This piece is part of my Gradient Moss series.

This piece measures 72" wide x 30" high and it is made to order and has a 4 to 6 week lead time. I send details photos for approval before shipping out.

This piece is made up of 1/2” strips of various greys, browns and green tone pieces.
The wood comes from a variety of reclaimed materials that were salvaged from old barns and old horse fencing in my area. It is difficult to see in picture, but there is moss and lichen on the wood which gives it the green hue. I am able to preserve all these features by applying two coats of low voc water base sealer to protect the piece without taking away from the look and texture of the reclaimed wood.

All my art pieces are made using very old wood from barns and homes taken down in my area.

Hi My name is Craig Forget and I am a reclaimed wood artist

I feel that I am part of the large art movement that has been growing in the Detroit and Windsor area, it is great to be part of this movement. It is also great to be able to express myself through art. I am in it for the long haul, I believe in producing the most unique art pieces with the most unique wood that I can find. I always feel that it is the old, reclaimed wood that makes my pieces unique.

I have been influenced by woodworking from a very young age and recently I have found my true passion for building unique artwork and furniture out of reclaimed barn wood. What I love about the materials that I work with is that you never know what types of wood you are going to find in the local barns that range from 80 to 200 years of age. You could say I am like a kid in a candy store.

What makes my artwork and furniture so unique is that I am always on the hunt for unique types of wood that will create an impressive piece. I especially enjoy working with wood that is bursting with character. There are no faux finishes in the world that can duplicate the colors and textures that Mother Nature creates, 95% to 100% of the colors you see on my art pieces have not been stained what you see is the natural color of the wood. When wood is aged for 80 to 100 years, it turns naturally dark in color.
The darker brown natural woods were those aged within a barn, while grey boards have been weathered outside.
When you are buying one of my pieces, you are also buying a piece of Pioneer history, when power tools were almost non-existent.
