Sergei Bobkov, demonstrates a sculpture of a life-sized bird he made out of woodchips. Who thought making something out of woodchips could look so gorgeous. The artist who makes this master pieces is Sergey Bobkov talented secondary school teacher who skillfully turns useless wood chips into genuine works of art. Sergey uses a self-developed technique to keep the chips from crumbling, soaking the woodchips in water for a number of days, which then makes them flexible enough to sculpt the woodchips into his beautiful master pieces. Sergey prefers to works works with cembra pine, but will use other wood as occasion demands, including Siberian cedar. It takes Sergey about six months to complete one of these masterpieces, and he refuses to sell any of his pieces, despite any number of generous offers he says he does he artwork out of pure passion.
