Andy Woodsmith

I work with wood. I like to create, or find imagery and symbols, that speak to me and then translate them into wooden mandalas and mosaics. Ancient symbols, especially “Sacred Geome-Tree”, have had a great influence in my work. I prefer to use only old growth wood that has been harvested with good intention. I believe everything has a spirit, especially wood, and I find the better treated the wood is before it comes into my hands, the more magic the wood is willing to share. Many hundreds of years of growth are incorporated into my pieces, which I find, brings a life of its own to the process and the finished piece.
