Before I painted the sculptures, I arranged them on the floor of my studio and snapped this shot, which made me appreciate how nice the unpainted wood looked. I had a little stash of various hardwoods that I'd amassed over the years, and so I started shaping them and playing around with various arrangements until I had my first series of natural wood sculptures.which you can see by clicking here.
This year, Artful Home asked me to create a design for their 30th anniversary celebration, so I decided to do my first-ever edition of one of these natural wood sculptures. I decided to adapt a previous design from last year that reminded me of flowers. I'm already familiar with working in production for the animal or the picketing Santas and Rabbis I sell through Artful Home, but I had never done it with this abstract work before.
The zebrawood offers another variety of grain options.
The black walnut base can also vary from carmel color to deep brown. Grain is also a variable factor.
I have posted all thirty pieces made for Artful Home on my Flickr page . (You can scroll through them here on the blog by clicking on the image below.)
Each piece is signed, dated, and shows which number it is in the edition.
