A little history of wood carving
For centuries, wood carved furniture and craftsmanship has been a highly valued form of artistic expression in many Asian cultures. The intricate designs and extremely high level of detail achieved by talented Asian craftsmen make these wooden decorations true works of art, as beautiful as they are functional.
Wood carving has a very long tradition in Asia going back thousands of years to ancient times. In China there is evidence of the use of advanced woodworking or carving techniques dating back to the Neolithic period. Throughout the centuries of Chinese history, different regional styles flourished, from the world-famous lacquer carving of the Ming Dynasty in the 17th century to the intricate and finely crafted ox-bone carving of the Dong ethnic group in Guizhou province.
In Japan, wood has for many centuries been the preferred and almost exclusive material for making all kinds of handicrafts and furniture, thanks to the abundance of forests with trees ideal for carving such as maple, oak and cedar. Traditional Japanese styles such as yosegi zukuri use the ingenious technique of assembling thin sheets of stained wood in elaborate geometric patterns to create intricate designs.
Exquisite Asian wood-carved furniture pieces combine creativity, precision, and functionality. Fine woods such as teak wood or sheesham are used, which expert craftsmen work with absolute meticulousness to sculpt designs that often have deep cultural, spiritual or auspicious significance for home or office décor.
