Brooklyn-based artist Alex Downs creates amazing bowls, plates and vessels out of ordinary plywood. But what’s equally as amazing is how he does it. Alex glues sheets of plywood together, puts them on a potters wheel and forms the spinning mass of plywood with a chainsaw (don’t try this at home kids!). The patterns created by the layers of plywood and the teeth of the chainsaw blade give his work a unique, almost hypnotic look. Be sure to visit Alex’s website to view more of his stunning work.
