John Sweezy – Woodworking - Lamps & Boxes

John uses locally found wood to create his one-of-a-kind lamps and boxes. He enjoys working with woods such as spalted maple, which has veins of coloration caused by fungi, and wood that has unique patterns as a result of insect movement. By cutting thin layers of the wood, he strives to reveal the unique patterns inside, then he layers and assembles the pieces to best display the textures and colors.
