four logs

These versatile screeprinted "LOGS" by Dean Van Dis are perfect for the wall or to create a faux fireplace of your own. They've been featured on several sites including D*S, and Swissmiss. We recently caught up with Dean and asked him a few questions about his Four Logs Project:

What was the inspiration for doing four logs?
The original four LOGS were made as a background prop for a project in a photography course in college. This was in 1991. They were cut out of mat board and hand painted to look like real logs. They have been hanging in every house I have lived in since.

What are the pieces made out of?
Masonite for now.

What do you love about woodgrain?
The repetitive organic pattern.

What other products do you forsee in the future?
I want to have the four LOGS pattern on cheap china. Maybe as a border?

What's next for you?
Back to work as a commercial photographer until a new idea strikes my fancy.

Thanks Dean! For more info, visit www.fourLOGS.com.
