Joshua Abarbanel’s beautiful wooden sculptures combine natural materials with marine inspiration. His latest series is designed to resemble coral reefs with concentric flower-like blooms created using both digital and manual techniques.

Each structure is first laser cut, stained in different brown shades and then assembled into organic patterns made from differently-sized pieces.
Explaining the inspiration for this series, Abarbanel says, ‘As an artist I explore forms and patterns, especially the colors, shapes, and compositions found in biological, botanical, and geological structures. I am interested in the relationship between the individual elements of structures and the larger forms of which they are a part’.
