Silent Night #2 by Toni Bruederich
This is a one-of-a-kind piece from Toni Bruederich's Hardwood Collection. "Silent Night #2" depicts a nighttime scene in a landscape that is both angular and free-flowing.
Bruederich first dries the wood, then hand-carves it using chisels, knives, and other tools. Finally the wood is flamed for highlights, varnished, and a hook is added for display purposes.
Bruederich is a self-taught artist with a strong interest in Norse mythology, symbolism, ancient cultures and gemstones. With roots in Germany, Bruederich finds inspiration while travelling, but feels most at home in Cape Breton. He loves the possibilities of wood as a medium, which he has grown familiar with through his family background.
