Wave Dancer, Norfolk
Norfolk Island Pine is always a mystery. What I thought would be a lighter color, came in real dark, too dark to the point that I thought that I would not finish this piece. After about 10 soakings in oil the piece lighten up and this wonderful grain came out. I used some negative space to highlight the form on this piece.
7 x 11.5 x 11.5 inches
Ocean Harmony, Koa
I have slowed down on working with Koa wood. My supply is getting low and the replacement costs is getting out of control. Seems like local wood artists are being priced out of working with this wood.
I was lucky to find this down tree a couple of miles from my home. As always beautiful color and grain with some figure.
Good size piece at 5 x 16 x 10 inches
