Twisted Tree Branches Fused with Ornate Picture Frames by Darryl Cox

December 9, 2015

Artist Darryl Cox fuses ornate vintage picture frames with tree branches found in the forests of central Oregon. The branches serve as a simple reminder of the materials used to build picture frames, but also create an unusual form factor where clean lines and ornate moulding patterns seem to naturally traverse the bark of each tree limb. Each piece involves many hours of woodworking, sculpting, and painting.

You can explore many more pieces by Cox on his website, on Facebook, and in his online shop. (via Quipsologies)
