Yuri Firsanov

Yuri Firsanov is a Russian artist who makes wood sculptures. I like the level of detail and the balance of his pieces.

The piece on the left (named "Tree of World") is linden and walnut and is 25 cm high. This piece feels especially light because of how  fine the branches are contrasted to the base and egg. 

The three pieces on the right (named "Take-Off," "More," "Night Guest") are made of linden wood and are each 20 cm high. I find these pieces somewhat humorous. The movement in "Take-Off" (leftmost) almost makes me expect the glass to topple over.

More of his work is pictured here:
