Sunset Desert Rose Sculpture

Wood Platter

Created by Keoni Carlson
Carved wood platter re-imagined to appear as woven and beaded basketry. Ideal as a centerpiece, tabletop sculpture, or wall hanging.

The inspiration for this sculpture comes from Native Culture Tribes. Prior to 1900, basketmaking was common in nearly every Pima home and squash blossom designs were a frequent motif, since the vegetable was central to the diet and life of the Pueblo tribes of the Southwest. Squash blossoms were also a common decoration during ceremonial dances. The color spectrum and name were inspired by the artist's sunset hikes in the Colorado Mountains.

There are more than 30,000 burn cuts on the front face; another 5000 on the back. The piece is finished with India inks, showcasing the design motif and underlying rock maple.
