Jason Tennant’s Amazing Chestnut Sculptures

Sculptor Jason Tennant uses local downed chestnut wood to make beautiful carved sculptures. Go inside his process and studio in this video by Etsy.

Before my encounter with Jason, a sculptor and painter, I had a lot of ideas about his work. Meeting him washed these ideas away, and I was left with the raw emotion that lingers in his carvings. His sculptures are quiet, flowing in the grace of their motion, but also hard and complex, like the wilderness that is their subject. There was a lot of silence in our time together — silence that made louder the sound of the leaves and more obvious the wrinkles of the wood.
