Joseph Walsh is a young Irish creative who has established his reputation over the last few years with his truly impressive works in wood. He pushes wood to the limit and manipulates its form like no other. Regardless of how you feel about his aesthetic you cannot but admire the workmanship and his respect for the material.
Leading a super team of craftsmen he works the wood into the most unexpected free forms, taking care and much consideration of every detail. It is a beautiful process. This film shows a table from his Enignum series and wonderfully captures the process involved. The filmmaker, Pau Camarasa, sets a pace with his shifts in focus, music and angles, that nicely expresses the effort-taking place in front of us. Have a look, click play above.
