Rob Vashak Mitate

Thu, February 1, 2024 - Thu, February 29, 2024

Rob Vashak is a Lincoln based “wood artist” who crafts a wide range of art, sculpture and practical pieces from sustainably sourced local British hardwoods. Although his work often involves many materials, and occasionally incorporates found objects, the main body of work is developed using sustainably sourced local renewable timbers. Typically, his generally three-dimensional work involves a range of sculptural forms created by and combining a range of technologies and techniques including carving, fabrication, turning and burning. Rob is motivated by the desire to create beautiful and often practical pieces, revealing the unique character of selected British hardwoods. Originally studying 3D Design, Rob opened his own studio in 2003, having been inspired by combining local timbers with found objects. The name “Mitate” is a Japanese term for recycling and repurposing and as such Japanese influences can be seen in much of Robs work.
