Although Simon was used to handle wood, this task permitted him to rediscover it in a completely new way. Thanks to the experience of being a self – taught person, he learned to appreciate the characteristics of wood as a raw material. The most amazing part/point of the work is the fact that every piece of art is surprisingly unique, as every type of wood has its own properties in terms of color, hardness and drying time. Simon gets this inspiration in the nature, where he loves spending his free time as a climber and mountain biker.
