Wall sculpture, Red Oak sculpted down from a 100 Lb slab to 8 Lbs, sanded, sandblasted and dyed with an oil finish. 32”W x 16” Tall x 6″ Deep
‘Elegance’, this is one of my most challenging forms to date. I am really excited to have completed it and love the lighter finish on the sapwood which creates a deeper contrast. The form is 30″ Tall x 15″ x 8″. I started with a 100 Lb Ambrosia maple half log and carved it down to 5 Lbs . 13 lbs with the base.
Off the Grid
Wall sculpture. Turned, carved & sand-textured Oak, 24”W x 24”L x 2”D. Inspiration comes from my 38 years as mechanical design engineer. I have drawn on grid paper 1000’s of straight & curved lines. As a wood artist I get to carve and color between & outside the lines.
This sculpture was carved from some beautiful wide grain marbled pin oak. The form was sculpted, deeply sandblasted and coated with linseed oil base finish to enhance the vibrant grain coloring. Dimensions: 8”D x 7” W x 30”H. The close-up images of the sandblasted textured surface reveal beautiful medullary rays that flow with the form.
