William Alburger

Barto, PA

My functional wood art is sculpted from naturally weathered boards that I rescue and salvage from fallen trees and barn boards. My consuming passion is to create highly original works, so I weave my art education with self-taught practices. I work outdoors all year and it is respect for the processes and mysteries of nature that informs my art. My organic designs come from the distorted boards themselves and I enjoy highlighting nature's own way of signing each piece. Showcasing the beauty of age and the glory of endurance, my pieces result in texture-rich works of art.
