A Visit with Sean Woolsey
Back in January I had a chance to visit Sean Woolsey, an artist and woodworker in Costa Mesa, CA. Sean’s a cool, down-to-earth guy whose been lucky enough to create a business that allows him to follow his passions.
I spent almost 3 hours filming and photographing him in his workshop/studio and was privileged to be the first person to see him “finishing” one of his art pieces.
What follows are photos from that day. You can hop over to Cultivated for a short film that shows all the work that goes into his art.
Sean uses sheet metal as his art canvas and treats it with a variety of substances to create a chemical reaction, creating the colors and patterns seen here. This is prior to his finishing with resin which seals and protects the art:
Definitely check out Sean Woolsey’s site for more of his work. He makes beautiful lamps, cutting boards, furniture, and art.
