The Edge 2011
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.
