Small Teardrop

Wood Sculpture

Created by Joel Hunnicutt
To create each stunning piece, the artist assembles dozens of small, precisely cut maple blocks into a rough shape, then turns it on a lathe to form an elegant silhouette. The artist's signature use of negative space adds further interest and depth. The vessel's body is dyed a soft green and its lip a bright yellow; it is finished with a high-gloss lacquer for a shimmering luminosity and depth of color rarely seen in wood.
