Lath Art is a woodworking folk art that uses strips of lath from lath and plaster walls to create a rustic picture. Although lath is the traditional material used, you'll find fisherman using old lobster traps and more contemporary artists use lattice or lumber stickers. Lath Art uses various shapes of wood to create a picture and relies on the position and direction of the lath strips to define detail and space. Each strip is cut into sections with a scroll saw, individually colored with stain or paint, then reassembled to create the finished picture. Lath Art is appreciated for its primitive folk art style. While subject matter may vary, nautical and rural themes tend to be the most popular.
