WHAT IS TRAMP ART?

By: John Hogan

Tramp art is a unique woodworking style that became popularized from 1880-1940. It is characterized by the notch carving and layering or pyramiding of many small pieces of wood for decorating a variety of objects.

Tramp Art is free form and unconventional in its art form and adheres only to the limits of its originator of a specific piece. Today our familiarity and appreciation of such art forms has become very prevalent in a society where so many things are made by machine and lack the human touch.
