Wood Vessel

(ID: A34680)
Created by John M. Russell
One of a Kind
This Lidded hollow vessel is hand turned from a solid piece Big Leaf Maple burl from Oregon. The lid is turned out of Gabon Ebony form Africa and Snakewood from Suriname. IThe artist incorporates a second element using the holes and fissures that are formed from natural processes, such as bark inclusions, bug holes, etc. The artist then chip inlays Turquoise. Chip inlay is a process where a larger stone is broken into smaller pieces that are placed into the voids. This method allows for consistency in color and texture. The inlay is then hand ground to the surface of the wood and polished. Lastly, pewter casting beads and Gold wire adds another natural element to the vessel. The vessel is finished with multiple coats of lacquer and polish.
