Citrus wood, dye, acrylic paint
7"h x 6.5"dia.
About the wood:
Because of the climate, citrus is a major agricultural crop in Arizona.
Citrus wood is heavy and hard with a very fine texture, and is very
amenable to carving. The artist uses only Citrus wood salvaged from
discarded trees destined to the landfill or firewood lots.
|Turned, carved and pierced through, creating "ribbons" of wood, suspended only
at the top and bottom of the vessel. Black leather dye and red acrylic paint.
