"Come to me Dancing IV" by Derek bencomo Bencomo

"Come to me Dancing IV"

Honolulu Art Museum, September 2, 2016, ongoing.

Natural edge Manzanita Burl wood. This wood is dense and hard, grows with many natural defects. I love it because it holds details well, many other wood workers wont use this wood, because it has a repatriation  of blowing up or falling apart on them. I have work with this wood for many years and have learned how to read the wood for the best results. 
6 x 10 x 8 inches

Exhibited at Art Maui Jureid Exhibition, 2016, Kahului, Maui, 2016
