Born on Vancouver Island, B.C., Frank Armich from an early age developed a keen attraction to the inherent beauty of local woods. As a young apprentice in his father’s business of the production of burl wood furniture and clocks Frank quickly acquired the skills necessary to work with wood.
Today Frank creats by hand a wide line of artistic sculptures such as bowls, whales, and wall pieces fashioned out of bird’s eye maple, red and yellow cedar, and fir. Frank carefully handcarved and sands each piece with the intent to raise and illuminate the wood’s grain. Possessing an ability to visualize beauty in its raw state, he successfully brings to life a deep, earthy resonance – a resurfacing of the wood’s once magnificent glory.
With a deep appreciation of the natural, surrounding landscape of the Parksville- Qualicum region, Frank employs a variety of roots as a medium to create
one of a kind chairs, tables, lamps and beds.
