Driftwood Sculptures by Vincent Richel


Vincent Richel is an artist and a sculptor based out of Rangeley, Maine who creates amazing sculptures using driftwood. He collects the driftwood from the Western Mountains of Maine lakes, cleans it, never treats and then sculpts with them. His sculptures are inspired by natural elements and animals often depicting them in their natural environment. Every piece of driftwood is naturally weathered and shaped over time giving the sculptures timeless charm and uniqueness. Through his work he gives tribute to the cycle of life. 

“The pieces come together to create sculptures that evoke a feeling of having drifted naturally; like the flow of water creating a drift in a lake.”
