These Stunning Wood And Resin Lamps Look Like Little Pieces Of The Ocean (20 Pics)

Published 5 months ago

Şamil Demirel is a Turkish artist who combines wood and resin to create stunning lamps that look like little pieces of the ocean. In an interview with DeMilked, the artist said that he got into wood carving around 6 years ago, initially starting out by making necklaces, small sculptures, and medium-sized decorative objects. Upon the recommendation of a friend, Şamil added resin to some of the necklaces he had been creating, and after noticing many successful examples of resin art on the internet, he started combining it with some of his sculptures and other carved objects.

When asked what materials he uses to create his art, the artist said that he uses olive wood for the trunk and base, and basswood for smaller objects. “Sometimes I use ceramic paste and bending wire for different designs,” added Şamil.

“The appreciation of my work makes me very happy. Most of all, it is very valuable to me that people buy it as a gift to the people they love,” said the artist. “It is also a source of pride for me that my name is mentioned and praised in addition to my work. However, I would like to emphasize that my work just consists of imitation of nature. Nature, the source of all inspiration and beauty. Therefore I am convinced that nature itself deserves all the praise and appreciation.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
