Ted Lott - Wood Sculptor, Artist & Designer

Ted Lott
Wood Sculptor, artist and designer

        Ted Lott is a wood sculptor, but his craft is more than just your average wood shop creations.  Ted 's work encompasses sculpture, architecture, furniture and design all in every piece.  Ted makes little dwellings out of small pieces of wood that have been meticulously fitted and shaped, sometimes to stand on their own, other times fitted in preexisting furniture like chairs and end tables.  From the images, you can really see the intricacy and detail to making each piece fit together perfectly.
        Ted Lott got his B.F.A at Maine College of Art in woodworking and furniture design.  He later went on to get his M.F.A at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  As well as being a world traveler, his work has been featured in museums, exhibitions and galleries around the states.  He has a great little website with more information and pictures, but before you head over there, here are a few of my favorites.

This is a wood sculpture made from circular wooden rings grouped together to form a Cloud, for which it's named. 

This is a time lapse of the building process for one of Ted Lott's miniature wooden mansions.
