Marko Èrtanec

Marko Èrtanec, born 1953 in Ljubljana, where he lives and works today. Continuing a family tradition, he has been designing and working wood for more than fifteen years.

Marko Èrtanec's intimate understanding of the wood itself is reflected in the design and execution of his works. His work incorporates simple inventiveness, unforced, a refined impression in space, and always zen-like objectivity. The wooden objects often have multiple meanings, with several layers of message as hidden in the material itself as in a separate and compounded form.
