The ROU Materiaal sculptures come from the search for woods of centuries-old Italian trees that have been cut because they sick or dead standing; the woods are treated in such a way as to combine the use of techniques that enhance veins or natural imperfections with others that give a more contemporary texture, such as fire, sand, gilding and resins.

Resins and acrylics are the main medium, which over time is added stucco and cement. The worked surfaces of ROU Materiaal evoke the stones.


The link between a "primitive" material world and the search for contemporary shapes and textures represent the leitmotif of ROU Materiaal's poetics.
