A selection of impressive sculptures and rustic furniture, inspired by nature and abstract forms, hand-carved out of driftwood by Tokeland, Washington-based crafter and artist Jeffro Uitto.
I have many different spots where I am able to hunt for material and I find most of my pieces in the winter, when storms are moving the wood around. In fact finding material is half the fun, it’s like a big treasure hunt. The pieces I find inspire the project a lot of the time, I will also come up with an idea and then save pieces for as long as it takes to accomplish it. It can be a very long process, from finding and drying the material to then putting the wood into a project. It’s definitely challenging at times. Shaping, fitting and moving the wood takes a lot of energy, I’m going to have to live until I’m 300 years old to pull off all the ideas I have.Jeffro Uitto
