Pascal Oudet is a wood artist working and living near Grenoble. His pieces are inspired by the effect of time deterioration revealing the deep structure of natural materials. On carefully selected trees, he creates forms of great finesse through sandblasts. In a constant balance between aggressivity to wear out the wood and delicacy to preserve his integrity, he goes up to transparency, creating a real lace out of wood. His creations combining technique and delicacy drive us inside the history of woods.
This technique invented by him attracts collectors, interior designers and art galleries worldwide. His pieces are present in permanent collections of Ateliers d'Art de France, the American Association of Woodturners and the New York Museum of Art and Design, and in private collections in Europe, USA, Asia and Middle East. In 2012, he obtained the Grand Prix de la Création de la Ville de Paris, and in 2014 the visitors choice award in the Festival International des Métiers d'Art de Baccarat.
