Electrified Wood ART
Electrified Wood ART uses a high-voltage transformer to create fractal figures in wood by flowing electrical current across wood soaked with a chemical solution. The tree-like markings created in this process are often called Lichtenberg figures, after German physicist George Christoph Lichtenberg, who discovered (in 1777) the electrical discharge patterns now bearing his name. When used judiciously, Lichtenberg figures can enhance Wood ART, but if not careful, can easily be overdone.

DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! Very high voltage is involved.

Art enthusiasts, first-time buyers, and seasoned Wood ART collectors are invited to explore Terry Alby’s Electrified Wood ART Gallery for inspiration. We suggest you also visit the other Wood Art Galleries for more artistic effects.
If you see something you would like to add to your collection, or are inspired by what you see and would like to commission Terry to transform wood you own, cured wood from Terry’s stockroom, or from Terry’s inventory of partially-completed pieces into Wood ART, contact Terry at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 262-806-2086
When ordering or commissioning a piece of Wood ART from Terry, please remember that some wood may be available immediately for production. Specific wood you are looking for might be available in his inventory, or might need to be ordered from other wood suppliers or possibly found in a natural wooded area and then dried for a period of time prior to creation of the piece.Request a Gallery Visit
