Yanni’s passion for nature and the wonder of her infinite forms inspires him to create magical artistic pieces which highlight the mystery of the natural world. Yanni uses a vast array of native Australian woods, many of which are offcuts of burls and other gnarled pieces of very old trees, which have endured the forces of nature and time. When incorporated into the structural form of the piece, they evoke a feeling of wonder and child-like joy of being free, while cradled in the embrace of nature. It is this experience that Yanni seeks to convey in his work – the sense of wonder and joy that resides deep down inside us all.
In his creative work Yanni draws both on his imagination and on his love of the great architectural designs of different cultures from all around the world.
Each is a unique and one-off piece and can be ordered on commission.
