LOST art woodworks
(North Carolina) Brian Bortz's “Contemporary Art Deco” work is built with fine domestic hardwoods, accented by highly figured exotic woods, veneers and shell, creating a pieces that invite attention longer than just a few moments. All pieces are made primarily using basic power tools with occasional use of computer aided technologies. Hand tools such as planes, chisels and scrapers are used frequently. All the marquetry work, more complex milling, and all finishing are performed by Brian on every piece he creates. He uses a variety of finishing techniques selected to best accent the naturally occurring figure in the wood, with all prominent touchable surfaces being hand-polished to produce a silky feel. Available at our Oakland and Burlingame locations.
