Colossal Wooden Spheres Made from Interlocking Wood

 

Lee Jae-Hyo is a famous Korean artist and sculptor. Born in 1965 in Hapchen, Korea, he received his BFA in Plastic Arts from Hong-ik University. Lee works primarily with wood, steel, stone and nails, creating incredible organic-feeling sculptures with textures you just want to touch.

In the mind-blowing series of wooden sculptures below, Lee creates giant spheres that are perfectly round and sanded. The process is meticulous and you can find a time-lapse view of his studio as he and his team of assistants create these larger than life globes on interlocking pieces of wood. The end-result are these imposing wooden spheres, with different cuts and angles of wood forming the outer layer.

Be sure to check out Lee’s official site for more astounding works of art. Be warned, you easily can get lost in his fascinating work!
