These are new carved vessels that were completed for our last mesquite show and are now headed to England, along with a ribbon sculpture and the Shangrila Rocker. In an effort to promote mesquite products overseas we sent a few pieces to display and sale. We’re excited to go global and confident that our work will be well received.
The first piece pictured is a mesquite canyon vessel with turquoise inlayed into the natural cracks. It was one of the smallest canyon vessels we’ve made, at approximately 18” L x 18” T x 6” W. The second piece is a mesquite wave bowl with turquoise inlayed as well. It was approximately 18” diameter x 12” T. The third is a small vase shaped bowl with lapis inlayed into the cracks. It was approximately 5” diameter x 6” T. All of them are first created with a chainsaw and then grinders are used to do the shaping of the waves, folds and bends. Each one is a unique one of a kind creation. Scott has a lot of fun creating these and can get real creative.
