- Contemporary Wood Sculptor -
A Minnesota native, Jay McDougall works alone creating contemporary wooden objects in his Otter Tail County studio. His reductive sculpture begins with the careful selection of distinctive logs from hardwood trees that have fallen or been marked for removal near his studio in rural Minnesota. His work is distinguished from most other wood collectibles in that it is carved from a single block of material and involves no glue-ups, joinery, or lathe-work.
Jay prefers to sell his work directly to his collectors via juried and curated exhibitions across the country and through this website, visit the online Store to acquire his work. You may follow these links to view his Contact information and Exhibition Schedule.
"I find inspiration in nature and its efficiency in design. It is everything it needs to be and nothing more."
