Applied Wood Carvings

In the 17th century, a period of prosperity gave way to the baroque and rococo styles. It was during this period that applied wood carvings, which are types of pierced wood carvings, extensively were used to beautify furniture, interior objects and various architectural forms. When forged by the hands of a master craftsman, the charm and character of carved wood is unequaled.

applied wood carvings

An applied wood carving is a carving design that is cut out, and often pierced. Onlays are carved separately from the ground. Onlays are, in effect, pierced carvings that are applied to a background. In pierced carving there is no background, as it has been cut away. These Center wood carvings with grapevine motif and grape clusters are an example of the pierced wood carving.

Onlays are designed to be mounted to another surface, such as onto cabinet doors, fireplace mantels, walls, or other wood surfaces. These beautiful grape clusters wood carvings are a great example of onlays. When this type of wood carving is applied onto another wooden surface, the desired result is to give the same appearance as that of a relief wood carving.

Wood carvings carved in a deep relief, make a strong visual impact through the shadows produced by the greater depth. When applied on a wood background of contrasting color, carved wood onlays give a dramatic effect. Most of the wood carvings on our website are furniture or cabinets onlays: they may be fixed to a wall or backing board, often in multiple layers. This method of applying wood onlays is advantageous; as it may conserve materials, facilitate undercutting, and make for a more practical installation.

There is no man made material that can replace the beauty and warmth of natural wood. Wooden textures are very pleasing to the eye. Nature inspired designs of wood carvings are filled with positive energy. These are only some of the reasons why more and more people use wood carvings in their homes. Wood carvings with grape motif are great addition to kitchen cabinets and wine cellars. By combining different types of wood carvings you can come up with designs that are uniquely yours.
