Beyond Containment (2012)

9 inches by 3  inches high by 6 inches wide

Douglas fir, turned, sandcarved

 
 

This piece is a skeleton version of my Essence Series vessels.  The title, Beyond Containment, refers to how it is both less and more than simply a container of the physical.

While a study in minimalism with a vessel by the very nature of it's abbreviated form, the removal of the material between the ribs of the vessel takes that notion to the next level. "Even with" or "because of" the reduction transformation of the material, the piece ultimately contains yet a stronger  energy.

The pieces is formed from a single block of wood - lathe turned and then sandcarved.

The price of this piece is $2200.  USD
