Carlo Trost was born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1959. Today he lives and works in the Udine region of Italy where he sculpts exclusively in wood. An artist in the tradition of Brancusi and other moderns, Trost uses primarily organic forms and shapes to create simple, yet startlingly effective images of nature and the natural world. His designs are effective, dramatic and original in concept creating a unique blend of naturalism and modern design that is compelling and beautiful.
