Can an old tree become a masterpiece of modern art? How decorate furniture originally using simple materials like glass and wood? The answers to these questions a very talented young artist knows.

Beauty is in the deffects
A young artist, Greg Klassen, is fond of nature and it inspires him make masterpieces. He uses wood of trees that fell apart because they are old. Many people wouldn’t probably pay attention to it. But this artist sees the beauty in defects and disadvantages.
Greg Klassen is in harmony with the nature. He was able to see beautiful lines on the old desks. He just highlights the lines and doesn’t change them.
The most distinguishing line of his works is the “River”. These works the artist did with the woods he found when he was walking at the shore of the river.
His works are unique and remind seaside. It is because the designer add some glass mixture in the middle of each work. He uses big pieces of glass when he makes big tables giving them a design of river. When he makes small tables he prefers the design of deep and transparent lakes.
For making lake and river designed tables he uses blue thick glass for his “River” collection that he makes by hand.
River taken apart
Besides the tables the master makes also decorations for the wall. He has a collection called “ A River Divided”. The works are made of 3 parts. These squares look like one sculpture divided into parts.
His work called “Round River” worths to be payed attention to. It doesn’t have frame. It makes the sense of weightlessness.
