Karmin uses dyed wooden reeds which are first straight. ONE BY ONE BY HAND she twists, curls, spirals, turns, and curves each reed that you see within the sculpture. She then puts all these curls, spirals, shapes, and colors together ONE BY ONE BY HAND to develop a sculpture that is bursting with color and movement. This wood sculpture was inspired by the Irish Master Wood Carver Glenn Lucas. She saw these long beautiful wood spiral shavings fall from the bowl to the floor. From that exact moment, the “Lost and Found” series began. In each sculpture she incorporates Lucas' natural wood shavings that have fallen to the floor and have been “LOST” or discarded. She “FOUND” them and gave them the purpose of creating something beautiful. These sculptures are so unique. She also tries to use reclaimed wood for the base whenever possible.

Karmin Schafer Hansen has been a professional artist since 1995. She lives in New York, USA. She has her BFA in painting from Syracuse University. Recently her direction has changed from painting into creating beautiful, energetic, wood sculptures bursting with color. They are called the “LOST and FOUND” series. They were inspired by watching wood shaving fall to the floor while a wood carver was working on his lathe. Karmin “found” those wood shavings that were “lost” on the floor and made them into something beautiful. From being “lost” to being “found”. Karmin invented this new unique style of art. She hand curls each piece of wood one by one that you see in her sculptures and hand builds her sculptures one spiral at a time. Karmin is always experimenting with new styles and new materials. Karmin’s desire is to continue creating her “LOST and FOUND” sculptures on a bigger scale and one day she hopes to create a huge outdoor “LOST and FOUND” sculpture made of metal.
