Century Plant

Hand spun copper buds are patinaed to resemble past bloomed flowers growing on a gracefully bent hand spoked shaved stem of mahogany. Hand spoked shaved satin-wood leaves surround the stalk and rest upon a walnut carved earthy base. An oil finish is hand rubbed on and sealed with natural bee's wax. A southwestern growing plant called Agave Utahensis found in the Grand Canyon provided inspiration for this piece.

AH Barn Bean Sculpture

The piece is skillfully carved removing the well aged rough wood exterior of the barn beam. At first a tree then a barn beam, a woman was released into a sculptural form. Sanding the wood to a silky smooth finish revealed the tight annual rings of this old growth wood giving way to an abstract form more expressional detail than I could ever carve. She stands tall, reaching out in an ambiguous pose. Is she still transforming?
