“Something from Nothing” James McNabb’s Scrap Wood Cityscape’s
Thanks to thisiscolossal.com we stumbled across the work of James McNabb. This Pennsylvanian artist and craftsman creates beautiful sculptures and furniture hand carved from various wood. We take particular interest in his City Series which a stunning collection of pieces hand carved from scrap wood.
Each small piece of reused scrap wood is intuitively on a band saw. The result is a collection of architectural forms, each one unique. They are placed together forming impressive sculptures that depict a Utopian world. The ethical nature of his product is a mark of his sensibilities and craftsmanship. McNabb’s website states of his inspiration “To me, the city represents the land of endless possibilities, a place where people go to make something out of nothing in search of fortune and fame” This talented man should be nothing short of fortune and fame if the rest of this carefully considered collections are anything to go by.
