Andy DiPietro currently resides in Burlington, NJ.
The art of my work is in the shapes I form and the beauty of the wood I select. I choose hardwoods that exhibit unusual colors and uncommon figures. My forms and finishes are chosen to showcase the grain flow of the wood. I enjoy adding texture to my forms by sandblasting the surface and enhancing the grain with color dyes and oil finishes.
My profession as a Mechanical Design Engineer for 30+ years has taught me the importance of shape, form and function along with focus on fine details. My artist career has allowed me to explore the beauty of shape, form, texture and color without boundaries. My true love is working with wood.
Wood artistry is a wonderful journey for me that is filled with passion, hard work, and joy. Wood is one of nature's most amazing materials, and I consider myself fortunate to work with it. Working with wood allows me to utilize my artistic skills and technical background to create beautiful shapes and forms that unlock nature's inner most beauty.
