Holz-Wald-Buch / wood-forest-book

hier ist eine wundersame Ansammlung von Büchern, die am Wochenende meinen Weg gekreuzt hat. Alles, was man sich an Hölzern denken kann ( oder auch nicht, denn man kennt sie einfach nicht) gestaltet zu diesen freundlichen, windschiefen, kleinen und großen Büchern, ganz schwere und ganz leichte...ein ganzer Tisch voll stand da. Und dieser nette Herr hat sie gemacht.
Seufz! Und es schlicht unmöglich, nur ein einziges zu besitzen...

here is a wonderous crowd of books which crossed my way this weekend. All sorts of wood, you can imagine ( or cannot imagine, because you simply don't know them) shaped into this friendly, warped, small and large books, very heavy or very light...a table covered with them. And this nice gentleman has made them. Sigh! And it's simply impossible to own only one...

The books look so lovely next to each other, can you show us what they look like inside?

B. you couldn't open them..they were just sculptured to feel them...but you could "read" their structure and the difference of the material. If you follow the link, you get a different view. Some were sculptured as open books...burned books...

Hey, these are beautiful! Not only would I like to touch them, I’d also like to sniff them, find the indiviudal scent of each book/tree. It’s great to discover art and then make others discover it too through blogging, isn’t it! And I love that leaf you painted, autumn in its best garment. For some reason sorrel/Sauerampfer never connected to the colour red in my mind, as if its leaves would stay forever green (or be eaten before it changed!). I like the way the colour bleeds out around its edges, as if it was giving off heat…
Will create a link to your blog from mine, hope that’s o.k. with you.

i really like that red apple there. each time i check back here, i always want to take a bite out of it. and those wooden books, how i also want to touch and smell them. love how you have them all together, Uschi.

came across a comment you left on Olga's blog...hope you are finding what you need to go beyond what you feel is just the 'decorative surfaces'. i am also feeling the same way about my paintings. cheers to a shared journey! :).

@marjojo:
Thanks a lot for linking to me, I feel honoured to be mentioned on your site :)
I was so touched when I saw this incredible sorrel-red for the first time...some sorts of plants just do this change.
And YES: this virtual all-around the world inspiration and connecting is BEAUTIFUL!!!

@Risa:
no...I didn't purchase any...depending on th wood it was quite an investment...But When I will be grown up and a big girl I know where to find the creator ;))

@Monica
welcome here!!!

@Julie:
yes, sitting there on the sofa, caressing them and sniff them..it'ssimply beautiful to know that someone had the idea...

@Mien:
I often feel, travelling through the blogs, that there are similiar emotional and thought-related vibrations and it is great how we can backup eachother through sharing these thougts :)
