"The Feeling of Movement", Small 102
From my "Feeling of Movement", series, but only smaller. The second piece of my small scale pieces from all my series.
I found this small log on the side of the road while walking my dog. I knew it was Pepper tree by the bark. I have worked with this wood before. But was in for a big surprise by the incredible color inside. What is hard about down sizing my work is, getting the proportions right. This piece worked out perfect. Hawaiian Pepper Tree, 7 x 6.5 x 5 inches
"Loving Eternity", 103
From my "Deconstructed", series, but only smaller. The third piece of my small scale pieces from all my series.
I bought this Manzanita burl wood, from a forest fire fighter from California. Hard and tricky to work do to how dense the wood is and the natural cracks and faults that this wood is known to have.
What is hard about down sizing my work is, getting the proportions right, I thought that i was going to have to cut this piece down in the beginning. But the size and proportions worked out perfect. Manzanita Burl, 7 x 9.5 x 7 inches
