Maple Shell, 2021




This piece is made from a burl that I removed from a dying maple tree. After excising the deteriorated material and carving, I filled voids with epoxy to create a smooth, flowing inner surface. The piece was dyed and painted. Four turned walnut spheres are inset, as if they are inclusions. Typically viewed as unsightly growths, this modification provides quite a different and less odious character- although it is equally strange.
