Jared Abner  Studio

Jared Abner

An extremely talented artist who works primarily in wood, here are Jared's own words on his sculptures:

"Simply put, my work is about subtraction and addition. First, through the processes of turning, carving, and cutting away at the raw material, I subtract. Then I put the pieces together again. Creation through destruction. Just like a little kid cutting something with a saw."
