Your Myth Here
Douglas Tausik Ryder has always had the desire to push the creative boundaries of sculptural art through technology. Inspired by innovation, the artist combines the conventional form of woodworking and contemporary technology, bringing a 21st century conversation to traditional wood working and sculptural practices.
Utilizing mass production and 3D modeling, Tausik Ryder transcends the limits of the hand-tool oriented medium and creates his sculptures through an industrial CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine tool.
