Using about 100 different chisels and an old wooden hammer which is dated 1964, Venetian artist Livio De Marchi creates everything imaginable out of wood. Nothing is too delicate or frilly for this craftsman who takes wooden sculpting to a whole new level. He has created entire rooms with furniture, light fixtures, books, table settings, and nicknacks chiseled from wood. He even floats through the canals of Venice in the Ferrari F50 replica he made out of wood (it also has an engine not made of wood). Perhaps the most impressive pieces in his collection are the ones in which he makes wood look soft- clothing, undergarments, even a cushy sofa.

Livio De Marchi never tries to cover up the fact that his creations are made of wood- leaving all knots and swirls visible and never covering up the natural feel with paint. Although he has also worked with bronze and marble he prefers wood because “it gives him a vitality which other materials do not.” Here is a small sample of his collections, the rest of which are available in the gallery on his website.
