Customized for you
There are quite a lot of jokes about eccentric artists. Even though I can not quite deny that my pieces communicate with me, I'm still a craftsmen with a decade of experience in the fulfillment of customer wishes. It is therefore a pleasure to me to customize pieces according to your liking and ideas.
Wood that is kept indoors is exposed to other influences than outdoor wood. Even though not as harsh as being exposed to all sorts of weather, dry, warm heater air is no less a factor that should be taken into consideration when picking a type of wood. Choosing a quiet wood with a bulbous structure is, besides the treatment of the wood, an important step in order to prevent cracking. Moreover the previous storage, age of the wood and its history should be observed in order to achieve optimal results. In case you wish to have a piece for sitting, I cooperate with a renowned interior designer in order to realize high quality, for the piece adequate padding. For the ultimate effect final polishing and oiling are essential. I do not work with paint. Instead the surfaces are being treated with oil, which is customized for each wood and type of usage. With this technique, an organic radiance is created that comes from the wood itself and allows direct skin contact with this wonderful and characteristic material you have chosen.
Wind and weather are always a special challenge. Probably the biggest difference compared to indoor pieces is that one has to make sure that water can drain. Besides choosing an outdoor compatible wood and treat it properly, a profound conservation is important to protect the wood against humidity, strong temperature differences, direct sunlight, snow and ice. Thanks to my preservation technique, which I adjust to every requirement, I have made several pieces weather resistant to the delight of their owners. An additional advantage of this treatment method is the incomparably pleasant feeling when skin touches the wood. These results can not be achieved with conventional varnishes or lacquers.
