The wood

The wood does look slightly different than normal, but that is because there is a fungus in it, so-called “sleep”. Before you have beech wood that looks like this, it must first be ‘matured’. This takes several years before the wood is transformed and still workable.

The essence of women

Jan-Carel made this wooden statue to order, where the customer’s wish was to maintain his own style because it appealed to him so much. The question was also whether he could incorporate some characteristics of his wife into the sculpture. Jan-Carel did this and to the satisfaction of the customer who was very pleased with it. Yet it was quite a challenge, Jan-Carel admitted, because it is something different to portray the essence of someone else’s wife instead of his own.

Spalted Beech wood

This wooden statue was made by Jan-Carel in a well-known native wood type, namely beech. It does look a little different than normal, but that is because there is a fungus in it, so-called “spalt”. Before you have beech wood that looks like this, it must first be ‘matured’. This takes several years before the wood is transformed and still workable.
