CRAFTSMAN AND ARTIST NICK LOPEZ

Nick Lopez is a 3rd generation craftsman and native of California who under the guidance of his father, he developed a unique and varied skill set as a builder and contractor. In 2009, Lopez began designing and creating Functional Art and home furnishings. Sourced from the construction site at which he worked, Lopez took the reclaimed wood, much of it out of old growth California Redwoods, and developed his ongoing passion. These materials were once used as barns, decks, and fencing, and were salvaged by Lopez during contracting projects to create functional masterpieces. For the past 7 years, Lopez has designed and created a signature body of work, comprising beds, chairs, tables, decorative sculpture and privately commissioned pieces. His aesthetic gracefully blends the Modernist tradition with a distinct sense of California style and sublime craftsmanship.

Using only reclaimed wood, I create art that is unique, and at the same time draw attention to the endless possibilities of working exclusively with salvaged wood…from hundreds to thousands of individual pieces. I am particularly fascinated by the challenges involved in transforming scrap that would otherwise end up in landfills into beautiful sculptures or functional furnishings.” For more information, visit http://nicklopezstudio.com/
