Sculpture

The Northern Aesthetic

The beauty and balance of the objects comes from the skill of our artisans, which has been refined over decades of creating exquisite pieces and the most delicate and balanced sculptural forms. Techniques by our master artisans include gilding with precious metals to enliven the surface and animate a live edge, carving by hand, or faceting, for a sensuous, tactile experience.

The beauty of each work lies not in uniformity, but in the history of each piece of wood, its individual story and its inherent perfect imperfection. Sensitivity is required in creating each exquisite piece.

Wherever you place your piece from Hownam Studio, it will be a quiet triumph of beauty and subtlety.
