Today we want to show you unique and beautiful sculptural furniture by Peter Rolfe. He studied to work with wood for a long time. The first five years he simply watched the work of masters and learned to handle solid hardwood with traditional methods. The next seven years, he is more trained in modern techniques of processing wood. Due to his experience today Peter Rolfe easily creates furniture from simple boxes for jewelry, to complex sculptural installations.

The following furniture in the form of human body made from birch ply.

  1. Amazing, excellent finish. I wonder how much they cost. It would be great to have one of those at home.

  2. Those designs are like nothing I’ve seen before. He placed the drawers in anatomically correct places, LOL. pretty funny…

  3. anyone else notice how there is only one male figure in a completely non sexual pose and that there are several female figures, one in an especially sexual pose? i’m sorry, but those are only further sexualizing women in an already OVER sexualized world. the rest are pretty nice though.

    1. You know this is only a sample of his work, perhaps there are more of the female form that aren’t sexual? Also there aren’t several female figures here, there are only two with multiple pictures of both. If you had been paying attention to more artists/works of art, the two in the female form are based off of poses from the works of Salvador Dali. The wood crafter is paying homage to another artist, not trying to objectify the female form.

  4. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
