What is "faux bois"? French for "fake wood", faux bois refers to the artistic imitation of wood or wood grains in various media. The craft has roots in the Renaissance, probably first crafted with concrete using an iron armature by garden craftsmen in France called "rocailleurs". They would typically use common iron materials, including rods, barrel bands and chicken wire as the form, then add and shape the concrete into wood grain art.
