An artwork often tells a story about events and people. A Lignis picture leaves an impression, originating in the nature of its material. A living material such as wood forms patterns and distinctive designs on its own. Lignis reveals the sensations they evoke, adding hand-finishing and colour to create home accessories full of personality.
