Do you have a stocked wood pile? If so, then you have an opportunity for artistry.
Just look at these examples of another use for the wood pile this winter and how art is everywhere.
From where the wood comes takes on a visual meaning with this fallen tree.
Perhaps this layout suggests the wood pile can be moved?
Or let it move itself.
Animals seem to be popular particularly owls.
Coming across this wild boar wood pile art might scare you while walking in the woods but it’s one of my favorites.
Intricate human portraits can also be created with multiple types and colored wood.
Or add color for a bold abstract impact that can be helpful in guiding your path.
This take a little extra digging but could be a good workout in the new year.
Wood piles don’t always have to be linear or laid straight in one plane, as seen in this spiral construction.
They can even be a sphere, which is very unusual. I just wonder what would happen if you took one log out for the fire? 😉
Speaking of a fire. This next wood pile reminds me of an oven. It uses a traditional stacked construction with the stair supports to help frame. The creative layout comes with 2 layers and a lot of wood that will keep you warm in the winter, hence the oven concept perhaps?
Finally, this hut construction is truly artistic and more for execution than for practical use — unless, the huts can be shelters. However, I rather suspect they may have been made by Patrick Dougherty, who fashions large sculptures out of twigs and natural objects.
However you stack your wood pile, just know it doesn’t have to be boring and you can have fun while doing the chore.
