This public art sculpture is installed at the North Block Hotel in Yountville and is part of the City of Yountville Art Walk. The pieces measures 63 x 18 x 18 inches and is made from 30+ layers of reclaimed redwood, sourced from old roof beams. The title of the piece is "Carved by Nature III" and it is finished with a special outdoor oil to protect the wood. However, the piece will be further "carved by nature" and might develop tiny cracks and imperfections that make the work even more interesting, just as we all do as we age.

Sculptures and abstract wall art from reclaimed wood

Lutz Hornischer is an abstract artist and sculptor working in the San Francisco Bay Area. His sculptures and wall art are inspired by nature, life, and the uniqueness of the reclaimed wood he uses. He enjoys the specific challenge of transforming an old and rustic material such as reclaimed redwood into contemporary sculptures and fine art. In his work, he leverages the architectural qualities of the wood by laminating wood boards into larger blocks, sculpting organic shapes, and exploring dynamic grain and natural color patterns. The old wood he is using has scratches, cracks, knots, and other imperfections that are similar to real life. Every piece of wood is like a person, with its unique character, challenges, and strengths. Lutz yearns to give the wood a new life and he hopes his sculptures and wall art inspire people to find new awareness, purpose, and joy in their own life. His art should also set an example that sustainability and re-use of material is not just a necessity, but a beautiful and inspiring part of our existence and future.
