Talk On Wood

Artist Lara Mann transforms a familiar material into something unexpectedly new. She painted over a plank of ordinary wood with a vibrant palette of colors, highlighting the undulating grain and even leaving a tough knot exposed. The result feels both natural and crafted, contemporary and traditional.

This portable work of art was chosen from over a hundred entries to become a finalist in our iPhone Case Design Challenge. The graphics are printed onto a durable Lexan case that snaps easily over your phone. Made in Georgia. Fits iPhone 4/4S/5/5S

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Lara Mann

"I work within the boundary between intuitive and systemic. By using a set of givens and possibilities to determine the end result, and adhering an authentic amount of calculated uncertainty, the outcome is simple yet visually intense. With my wood grain inspired paintings, I came across a wooden circular table-top at a home improvement store which was quickly followed by an "a-ha" moment. I realized I could adhere my natural color sensibility to the beautiful organic lines of the grain and knots."

        The description was awesome. The picture was vibrant. My expectation was a unique one of a kind wooden iPhone case. The case is shiny and appears to be plastic. Not impressed.

                This case has a very unique design and nice tactile feel. I like the minimal design of this case but may not be for everyone, though the phone is held securely. The colors are not as vivid as the website picture displayed on my screen which was disapointing but I still love the design.

                  Cute and stylish, but overpriced. Plus case does not provide adequate protection, as top and bottom of phone are not covered.

                            We love the Lara's use of natural lines and cool colors. My favorite thing about this design is that you can see the wood grain, so it has a modern yet earthy feel. What's yours?

                            The colors look fun and the wood grain has a natural feel that can't be faked. What an eye catching piece! Want!

                            The natural wood grain, and soothing use of palette give a unique and intriguing option. I would love to buy this product, as well as others from this artist.

                            I like the shape and color that is familiar as wood grain, but new as seen through the eyes of the artist. Familiar and friendly. Fresh and Modern!
