A NOTE FROM THE ARTIST ABOUT MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUE: "I exclusively work with burl wood to create one of a kind sculptural vessels. The pieces are initially prepared into rough, workable shapes with a chainsaw. Sometimes I mount the pieces onto a lathe and turn them, using long-handled gouges and a variety of chisels. At other times, I use grinders to sculpt organic forms by hand. Each piece is then finely sanded soft and smooth. I apply a urethane oil-based topcoat, which produces a beautiful hand-rubbed quality finish. The burl lends itself to unique bark inclusions and distinct grain patterns, no two pieces are alike. I focus on form over function. I often incorporate crushed stone, silver and copper powder inlay, mineral specimens and antler for dimensional purposes and beauty. "
