Sculptures made of reclaimed pieces of wood, by Ron van der Ende.
These are really cool. I bet they’re amazing to see in person!
All I have to say is, check out his website too if you have two minds and only one of them has been blown.
ooh my, thanks so much for posting this, I’d seen the diamond piece on the net before but never knew who made it :)! great pieces!
saw these at the armory show in new york this year, and they were definitely some of the top things there. so good!

this guy’s work is epic!
Oh. Huge Personality ! I want to watch him when he creates this.
I enjoy viewing these and knowing they are made of reclaimed wood is even better. Great craftsmanship as well…
It is definitely worth checking out this guys website, being able to see larger images of his work really brings the pieces to life. The burning log is incredible. I can’t imagine the amount of time it takes to figure out where each piece of wood should go. I’ve never seen anything like it, it’s genius and I’d love to own one of his sculptures. There are too many amazing pieces to choose a favourite but I must mention the diamond, it’s spot on, you couldn’t fail to know what it was yet when you look more closely, you appreciate the time that’s gone in to get it right. I love the perfectionism of the craft.
