Every tree carries the record of all events that shaped it until the day of its death. This information is printed in the uniqueness of the wood grain, a pattern of hypnotic beauty for its irregular, yet perfect structure. It is the attempt to lay bare the life history of a tree in a three dimensional form that has lead us to woodturning, a technique that deals with wood in its raw state, while keeping it’s identity unaltered. However, reading trees is like mastering a foreign language without a dictionary. It’s curiosity and fascination that drive us to remove layer upon layer in the search for the most fulfilling part. The soul.
Nodo’s ethical statement
Nodo, the italian word for knot, defines an ethical group pursuing a modus vivendi: respect for nature, human life and their rythm. Different personalities share knowledge, expertise and love for woodworking. Each piece comes from salvaged wood, from mostly fallen or dying trees. Crafting itself is carried out taking into consideration the environmental impact. All this is at the core of Nodo.
