Truly a one-of-a-kind piece. This is made out of Red Mallee Burl and has been inlaid with Turquoise throughout the piece. Red Mallee is from Australia and is in the Eucalyptus family. Since most burls have natural voids in them, they can often be inlaid for dramatic effect. The entire piece (top and bottom) has very small void or inclusions that I painstakingly filled with Turquoise. Take a look at the picture showing the close up of the grain and you will some it. When you look closely at the other pics you notice the inlay done throughout the piece.
All burls have natural cracks and voids and these are not considered defects. It was hand sculpted on my lathe by me. My sanding and finishing process is rather elaborate and involves more than 20 steps. It has been finished with Tung oil and then buffed out with wax. It is NOT for liquids. Like any natural wood product, it should not be placed in direct sunlight for long periods.
You will receive the exact piece of art pictured.
It is 3” tall and 12” x 14”.
This sculpture is inscribed on the bottom with my name, the year created (2009), the wood, the name of the piece and the name "Spiritwolf". All of my lathe sculpted art pieces are inscribed with this name. According to family legend, this was the surname of a long ago ancestor and is included as a way to honor my history.
Having this piece in your collection, or even starting your collection with this piece, is something you need to do! Think how wonderful it will look in your home or office.
