Evoking clouds and wispy trails of smoke, hunks of gnarled driftwood arise from Jonah Meyer’s sculptures. The Hudson Valley-centered artist carves modest cabins with clean siding and little doorways that specifically contrast the twisted branches and knobby bark that seem to billow from their chimneys. Initially conceived in 2008, the works capture the romantic relationship involving the organic and human-designed and comprise the artist’s Much better Properties collection, which he started though building a household in the Catskills.

In addition to his exercise, Meyer is also at the rear of the household furniture brand Sawkille Co. You can find more of his sculptures on his internet site.
