Untitled Vessel
Oak, sandblasted and bleached. 4 ½ in. height by 6 in. length

 

This piece is of pin oak.  It was turned green, creating the dynamic curves to instill extra "life" into the bowl.  The bowl has been sandblasted, bleached, and then sanded back to enhance the patterns of the grain and rays.  The intent is one of slight ambiguity in terms of the material (wood vs. say stone?) and the level of organic quality in the piece.  A strong human made statement, but when combined with  the distortion from the wood drying (both the elongation of the piece as well as the lilt from the way the bowl sits), the overall effect includes a definite and essential organic quality.
