Oregon Art Beat

Wood Sculptor Philip Clausen

He’s not a wood carver. Philip Clausen is a tree sculptor; transforming gnarled logs into art and furniture on a gigantic scale. Travelers stop by his roadside shop near Coquille to marvel at six foot tall mushrooms and massive tree truck tables, while he works on a commission for McMenamin’s Rock Creek Tavern.
