Turning wood into works of art.

Kim Blatt is a creative at heart. He began his art career at an

early age, showing a natural talent for drawing and painting.

He pursued his interest in art by studying Advertising Design

at the New York Institute of Technology in Westbury, Long

Island. Kim completed his Bachelors Degree of Fine Arts with

a major in Communication Design in 1975 at Kutztown University.

Kim continued his education with studies at The School of

Visual Arts in New York City from 1975 through 1977.

After a 28 year career in Advertising and Marketing, Kim focused

on his true passion, working with wood as a 3-dimensional

outlet.

Today, Kim's turnings incorporate a combination of

sophisticated, traditional shapes with a complementary flair.

His work is now focusing on surface embellishments, not as

an interpretation of nature, but as a way of adding depth and

movement to his forms. Kim's embellishment techniques

include carving, burning, dyeing, engraving, painting and

adding acrylic resins and various metals to enhance the natural

beauty of the wood itself.

Each piece is then hand finished with 12 coats of acrylic

lacquer and hand buffed to perfection.
