Gil Arad's Japanese inspired screen


Gil Arad (pronounced as 'Geal') is an Israeli woodworker. He recently finished building a Japanese inspired single-panel screen made from cyprus, cedar, and handmade rice paper. The piece is accented with a beautiful bamboo branch that serves as its focal point. I really like how Gil shaped the feet of the piece. He created diagonal facets that soften the necessary heft of this structure, allowing it to look lighter and more interesting.

The bamboo branch gives it an oriental feel.  Nicely done.
