Bocote medium, cut series, sculptural bowl


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 striking small bowl is made out of Mexican, plantation grown, Bocote wood. Bocote is a cousin to the Rosewood family and has a remarkable grain pattern.

It has my name, the year it was created (2008), the title of the piece and the word "Spiritwolf". Family legend has that this was a long ago ancestor's surname and is place on all my sculptural pieces as a way to pay homage to my ancestors.

You will receive the exact piece of art pictured.

Size: Point to point 8 ½” x 6 ¼” x 2 1/8”

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 is a lovely piece that would be a great addition to your art collection.
