“Turning Point” - Lignum Vitae – 10 x 2.5 x 3 - I started this piece at
the onset of a major illness in 2006 but left it unfinished until
recently – it speaks to the personal consequences of physical and mental
trauma – this piece of Lignum Vitae was a gift from David Ellsworth –
Lignum Vitae is so oily that it will not dry or take a normal finish –
this piece has only a wax finish - $2800. Photography by Jim Osborn.
Note: This spoon and two
others were accepted by the jury for the West Virginia Art and Craft
Guild 10th Competition. They were exhibited at three locations in West
Virginia starting with the Parkersburg Art Center, November 15 to
November 27, 2014. The show then traveled to the Wheeling Artisan
Center, January 15th to February 21, 2015 and last to the Huntington
Museum of Art, March 7 to April 5. Two of these spoons will be for sale
in those venues rather than from my site for the duration of the event.
