Miniature Narrative-Based Sculptures Created From Balsa Wood by Vera van Wolferen

February 10, 2017

Kate Sierzputowski

Dutch multidisciplinary artist Vera van Wolferen (previously) produces miniature balsa wood sculptures, architectural objects that are either incorporated into animations or left motionless to tell their own stories. Her static works are often displayed beneath glass bell jars, leaving the audience to imagine that the tiny tree houses, cottages, and campers are neatly contained within their own universes. Van Wolferen also uses simple craft materials like cotton to enhance her sets, making it appear as if her sculpted homes are resting amongst the clouds.

You can view more of van Wolferen’s wood sculptures and sets, as well as some of her cut paper illustrations, on her InstagramFacebook and Behance.
