Sculpture Paduak free standing, turned and carved


Shipping to United States: Free

This is part of my "Cut" series.
There are three primary concepts, being driven by different questions:
— Just how much of the piece can I remove after turning and still have it be a bowl?
— How can I utilize this post-turning removal to further accentuate different aspects or viewpoints of the piece?
— How can I use post-turning removal to create a greater sense of movement or force a change in the conceptual perspective of the piece?

Each piece is turned on the lathe by me while in it's final shape, that being a square, rectangle, quadrangle or a polyhedron. Then each piece moves on to the table saw, band saw or both for further cutting. Finally, there is fairly extensive hand sanding and finishing. This was created in 2008.

This particular piece is made out of African Paduak wood. It has a striking reddish/orange color that will darken some over time. The piece has a shallow bowl turned on each side and then was cut in a pattern to accentuate the flow of grain in the piece. It also has a strip of beautiful, nearly white sap wood that runs down one corner (see photos). It is intended to be displayed standing with both sides showing, although once it is yours you can display it anyway that suits you.

You will receive the exact piece of art pictured.

Size: 7 3/8” tall x 7 5/8” wide x 2 ¾” thick

All woods can have natural cracks and voids and these are not considered defects. It was hand sculpted on my lathe by me. Like any natural wood product, it should not be placed in direct sunlight for long periods.

This piece would look spectacular in the entry way to your home or office, or perhaps on a shelf in your bedroom or living room.
