-ADVERTISEMENT-

The shores of Washington State don’t have quite the reputation of those in sunny California, but they have an untamed beauty to them that doesn’t bear the mark of human touch. Rather than long stretches of golden sand, the ocean is bordered by the dense, lush vegetation of the Pacific Northwest, while the ground is covered with driftwood.

Jeffro Uitto, a local sculptor whose favorite medium is wood, understands this wild beauty, and in the gnarled bits of timber the ocean spits out he finds the greatest expression of this aesthetic. Uitto takes this refuse, carving out gorgeous pieces of art which he often exhibits on the backdrop of the ocean that gave birth to them.
