Wooden mosaics and marquetry
Wooden Mosaics and Marquetry by David Eppig. He uses reclaimed construction woods with a historic background. Dave uses pre-1940s material, deconstructed from unlivable homes in Detroit, MI. Detroit's salvaged lumber movement has been consistently gaining momentum as public conscience supports the reuse of idle resources rather than feeding urban blight in total demolition. Dave endorses this movement, creating environmentally conscious art pieces.
Each piece of wood is carefully chosen for it's color and character in order to assemble one of a kind designs. The properties of salvaged lumber (grain, texture, patina, age, weather exposure) give his mosaics a genuinely unique story and aesthetic. His inclination towards geometric patterns reflect in his technique and iteration.
