Made of richly detailed Ambrosia maple with dark brown markings across the wood, it makes a unique, gorgeous addition to any rustic or cabin-inspired living space.From the Artist:As an artist and woodturner my goal is to take the woodturning process a step further and create hand carved wood bowls and vases that capture the essence of nature in the finished wood vessel.My gnd create hand carved wood bowls and vases that capture the essence of nature in the finished wood vessel.My goal is to achieve a synthesis between the once living tree and the curves and movement of the carved bowl or vase it has become. The grain and texture of the wood add a warmth and vitality that gives a distinct dimension to the finished piece.I work almost exclusively with local woods. During the turning process grain, color, knots and other features in the wood are revealed, often driving the design of the piece. Thus, a knot or a dark spot might become an eye, the swirl of the grain calls forth the sweep of a wing.... All brought out, emphasized and enhanced by the carving. My ultimate goal is to depict Wildlife captured in turned and carved wood. read more
