This is a work in progress and one of the most exciting functional sculptures I’ve worked on in several years, each chisel pass reveals a new dimension on it’s many facets of tone and texture. There is always a compromise between the sculptor and wood when working with burl. With its grain growing in chaotic clusters and its organic shape, your visual skills and limits in bringing out the best of what you can from this very special wood is revealed. This burl table will have a glass top spanning across it resting on three points. The burl measures 5.5 feet by 3 feet. I will be posting photos when it’s all finished.
