Blase Mathern calls himself the Wood Maestro, and it's easy to see why. His one-off pieces reflect the combination of wood fetishism and craftsmanship that only someone deeply engaged with the material could create. Pieces like his Satin Cirque, above, and Quilted Chamber, below, seem as if they clearly had their genesis in a workshop rather than a CAD environment.
Colorado-based Mathern was formerly an architectural woodworker for the Wigand Corporation, but he's now set up shop for himself. Check out his pieces here.
