Some of you may remember the Red Star Kim box I posted 56 days ago.
This wall hanging is my re-interpretation of the Red Star in the style of Andy Warhol, originally used for his portraits of Marilyn Monroe.
Materials are Sycamore, Steamed Pear, Padauk, Purpleheart and Ebony with an Ebony border, all on a 4.5mm Birch ply backing. Finish is the usual sanding sealer and Organoil wax. Size is approx. 185×175 x 8 mm.
You may notice a small step left in the centre border of the lower row. This bothers me too, especially as I cut the material for all four stars at the same time.
The Star construction is blogged here
