Lee Jae-Hyo is a famous Korean artist and sculptor. Born in 1965 in Hapchen, Korea, he received his BFA in Plastic Arts from Hong-ik University. Lee works primarily with wood, steel, stone and nails, creating incredible organic-feeling sculptures with textures you just want to touch.
In the mind-blowing series of wooden sculptures below, Lee creates giant spheres that are perfectly round and sanded. The process is meticulous and you can find a time-lapse view of his studio as he and his team of assistants create these larger than life globes on interlocking pieces of wood. The end-result are these imposing wooden spheres, with different cuts and angles of wood forming the outer layer.
