Amil Demirel is a Turkish artist who creates magnificent lamps that resemble tiny bits of the ocean by combining wood and resin. The artist said in an interview that he began carving wood roughly six years ago, first crafting necklaces, miniature sculptures, and medium-sized ornamental pieces.
After a friend suggested it, Amil began integrating resin with some of his sculptures and other carved pieces. After seeing many successful examples of resin art on the internet, he began combining it with some of his statues and other carved objects.
When questioned about the materials he uses to do his work, the artist said that he uses olive wood for the trunk and base and basswood for the more minor things. “For varied patterns, I sometimes utilize ceramic paste and bending wire,” amil said.
Depending on the intricacy of the creation, each item takes amil around 2 to 3 weeks to produce.
“I am ecstatic that my effort has been recognized. Most importantly, it means a lot to me that people purchase it as a present for the people they care about,” the artist added. “It’s also a source of satisfaction for me that, in addition to my job, my name is acknowledged and applauded.” However, I’d want to stress that my work is only a recreation of nature. Nature is the source of all beauty and inspiration. As a result, I am sure that nature itself is deserving of all respect and admiration.”
