Item details

Gradient #5 Reclaimed wood wall art
This piece measures 24" high x 72" wide and it is made to order.

This abstract gradient art piece would make a great statement in your home or commercial space.

I used small 1/2" strips to make this piece making it very time consuming to build, but adds a tremendous amount of detail and depth to the piece. The wood you see is a mix of reclaimed wood from various places. All the colors in this piece are original color accept for the white wash band. The Natural colors you see are due to the aging and weathering of the wood, which means there is no stain or paint on the wood just what mother nature created. This piece consist of some natural rustic white Oak, white wash wood, weathered grey wood, mossy green wood, and some really dark aged grey barnwood. There is 2 coats coats of low VOC water based sealer to protect the piece while preserving the look and texture of reclaimed wood.

Each art piece is hand signed and dated in the back and also has a custom made laser engraved wood name tag mounted on the side of the piece.

I also include a heavy duty mounting bracket.

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.
