Gradient Lines - Wall Hangings

Item details

This piece is completely made of naturally aged wood from very old barns and houses that where taken down in my area.

There is no stain or paint used for the coloring of the wood, just what Mother Nature created. The red barn wood is original to the barn, it has been aged for many years to achieve this faded look.

These are truly one of kind pieces that will not be easy to replicate exactly. The exact one in the image is in stock and ready to be shipped out. This piece measures 60" long x 24" high x 2" deep

If you are interested in a custom size give me a shout and I will see what I can do at the time based on wood availability.

This piece is made up of 1/2" strips of various grey, red and brown tones. I sprayed two coats of low voc water based 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.
