Doug Pisik

Lives in Marietta, GA

Doug Pisik has received awards in many juried exhibits of national artists, been part of over a dozen museum exhibitions, collaborated with other recognized artists, and he has accepted large commissions including several from Home Depot, Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre and the Smith Gilbert Gardens.  He is classified as a “Master Woodworker” from the Woodworker’s Guild of Georgia. His work is collected by Tony and Emmy award winners, movie producers, CEOs, other artists and can be found in collections coast-to-coast and in Europe and Israel.


His work is often composed of unique geometric patterns generated out of highly contrasting woods with a perfected technique called “Through-Pattern Construction” allowing complex patterns to pass from the outside through to the inside of his boxes and to the backside of his sculptures ensuring every facet is finely decorated. 


Dyes and stains are typically avoided and instead Pisik continuously searches for woods with naturally contrasting colors and tones to accent his work.  Some of his pieces are constructed with over a dozen species of woods and are composed of over a thousand pieces seamlessly joined together into a solid composition.
