Sam Soet

Sam sat in on his first college art class at Kendall College of Art and Design with his mother before he was born. On his father’s side he is related to Vincent Van Gogh, so it could be said that his compulsion to create art is an unavoidable part of who he is. Sam studied fine art at Ball State University and learned the art of wood sculpture while apprenticing with master sculptor Leslie Scruggs. Sam works primarily in subtractive wood sculpture using gouges, rasps, chainsaws, grinders, sandpaper, and other woodworking tools. His work is heavily inspired by the lines, forms, and movements of nature.
“I create my sculptures in my workshop in Farwell, Michigan. I begin by sustainably harvesting the wood, then I mill the lumber, hand carve, sand, and finish the piece. Every work of art is unique and each piece of wood is carefully selected to bring out its natural beauty and character. Most of the work I create is from locally sourced wood. I typically have ash, black walnut, cherry, maple, oak, red cedar, and spalted maple in stock.”
