After I made the Hickory Wine display box for a client, I wanted to make a few more of the windows. What better excuse than for Christmas presents. I started making 5, ended up with only 4. These are walnut tree windows…. walnut styled branches (not all that different from hickory) of 1/8” thick black walnut wood, and serrated compound leaves made from broken wine bottles: foiled, leaded onto copper and copper patina. I am happy with them, but not content… as these are studies for a lamp series I am designing.
