Each sculpture is unique and may not look identical to the photos. The grain of the wood on each piece will be different and they are hand cut so each may vary slightly. I only have listings up for items I have in stock and ready to ship.
This mid century inspired sculpture was cut from redwood. It is then torched to bring out the grain of the wood and turn the color a rich shade of brown. The burning causes some cracking as moisture is forced out of the wood, this is not considered a flaw in the work but an addition to the natural and aged feel of the piece.
If you are a fan of the artist Shag you might be interested to know that he owns a few of my sculptures and my "Extended Family" sculpture was used as part of an installation he did.
This method of working with redwood was made popular by a company called Witco, they are most famous for the amazing tiki statues and furniture they produced in the 60's and 70's.
A great addition to your mid century or contemporary decor.
