From Saw Dogs headquarters, Steve and his foreman pull from a pool of the best carvers in the world, matching their special skill sets to each week’s project, to craft some of the most intricate wood carvings imaginable. While Red Sandalwood is a luxury on its own, it becomes even more so when turned into exquisite furniture by the hands of Master Zhong. Sublime skills and a sense of beauty are all embodied in the work of Zhong Jinde, a renowned artist who breathes new life into wood carving.
Though there are many woodcarving workshops in Suzhou, his exemplify the highest achievements in the craft in China.
As they touch and rub it from day to day, they apply pressure and bring out the oil in the wood and smooth the surface, resulting in a kind of shiny gloss on the surface, making it all the more beautiful.
Zhong says his clients are showing more interest in works that depart from the traditional idea of wood sculptures.
With these inspirational works, the artist manages to take the viewer closer to a fantasy world, where curve-line windows and doors are common and wood is the natural material to use, no glass or steel in sight.
