Years of experimenting with different mediums and seeking new ways of expressing his creativity has led Davoud Khosravi to the wonderful world of wood. He is passionate about working with wood not only for the beauty and mystery of the material, but also for the challenges it presents, the invention of new techniques, processes, and tools to create objects. He incorporates several techniques in his work: inlaying, laminating, turning, carving, and sanding.
The many small pieces in each form are cut and aligned in stunning medleys of grain, color and pattern. Each form is hand sanded or shaped and polished on a large lathe then varnished to a high gleam. The sensual shapes are purely from his imagination. Khosravi uses a variety of North American woods such as maple, cherry, walnut, oak and intensely colored exotics: ebony, purple heart and padauk in his creations.
