Wood • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE
Philip's process involves a cocktail of modern day technology plus simple, old school patience. While utilizing technology within the process allows Philip to stretch what is possible for the composition, there is no substitute for copious amounts of hands-on effort invested into a piece of woodwork. The medium requires a mindful balance of design and structural integrity. This ceaseless give-and-take drives the final artwork to emanate both a traditional aesthetic with a modern freshness.

Through a cocktail of hands-on work plus machining, New Jersey-based artist Philip Roberts creates captivating layered-wood Relief Sculptures. They are built to inspire curiosity through intricate details while bringing a warm touch to any environment. Building the intricate form starts with endless hours of building vector illustrations which are then painstakingly transformed into layers with his laser cutters. The fragile layers are then meticulously worked over to then be finished and glued by hand into a final image. Everything from start to finish is completed within Philip’s studio.
