About Martín Darío Lopizzo
The nobility of wood invites us to dream, to imagine different forms, shapes and relieves, and, once one has learned to work wood, a never-ending contact with it becomes essential and necessary. Beyond every stroke of the gouge on the veins, a new silhouette and a new scent waiting to be part of the work are discovered.
Martín Darío Lopizzo
Introduction. Welcome! My name is Martín Darío Lopizzo. I was born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in August 1974 and through this web page I will try to show you some of the objects in which I have been working for some years.
My early stages. My love for this craft began some time ago when I was looking for an activity outside work with which I could relax myself and express my own feelings at the same time. That is how I first knew the wood crafts and carving; somehow by chance, somehow purposefully looking for it, since I now feel that my love and affinity for this material have always dwelt in me.
My first steps as professional. My first works were just small carved pieces I dared to do “by curiosity”, till I decided to contact some argentine masters who offered me all their experience and professionalism in this delightful art, but mainly, they showed me the constant way to perfection, so necessary in this as in any other activity.
My work. In this small display you
will be able to find the most varied objects I have been asked to make and you will
also contemplate my effort to introduce carving in the most diverse corners of everyday
life and to admire it everywhere at any time. Each piece, independently of its shape and
size, is unique; it is done with the passion, love and all the respect that can be given
to a piece which requires either few or many hours of creation.
Applications. Even the least imaginable objects can be produced in wood, for wood carving and wood crafts can be applied to different uses that will give our home and working place a unique style, original and unequalled. The most frequent uses are:
- Inside and outside home decorations
- Decoration of offices and shopping malls
- Personal presents
- Business presents
