Art and art gallery enthusiasts alike are generally accustomed to seeing an artist’s finished pieces. Most of the time, we do not get to see the process behind creating the works of art that we so admire.
Frank Howarth is a Portland-based architect and woodworker, who creates videos that not only document his process, but also explain the decisions he makes at each step along the way. Howarth’s videos are interesting and involved; sometimes pushing 20 minutes in length.
Frank also creates stop-motion videos, in which he digitally removes himself completely from the image, giving his inanimate tools and materials an anthropomorphic spirit. Check out the video below, in which his shop ghosts make him a carver’s mallet:
This is just a small sampling of the videos Frank has created over the years. You can check out more of Frank’s work on his Youtube channel.
