For me it is environmental massage to save water…”every drop is counted”
Is that what you mean, Dave?
Nice and unique.

Wow, that’s nice. What types of wood did you use or how tall is it?

Thanks,
M.

Thanks guys,
The woods are jacaranda and red gum and the piece is 12” tall.
Sam,
This piece was indeed intended as a message regarding water usage—specifically, the unnoticed flow of water which is not actually used, but just leaks away out of our systems. In the work, I’ve attempted to recreate this situation using wood: the top of the jacaranda piece symbolizes the splash made by a drop of water into a pool, with the rings on the wood representing the ripples. This drop of water then proceeds down to the tip, to drop (excuse the pun) to ground. The drop’s presence both at the top and the bottom emphasizes the fact that the rate of loss of water is equal to the rate of acquisition: instead of savoring the water we already have; we seek to obtain more.

G’day Dave, beautiful piece of art and a great message. Lots of water down here in Central Victoria now but we can remember the past years.

A concept everyone should tale to heart, we loose billions of acre feet down the drain just waiting to get warm or hot water.

That’s very nice! I’ve been wanting to do a hanging type vase and have been stuck on the “hanging” part. That opens up new avenues of thought. I’m curious about the woods used. Here in the states, particularly where I live, I use a lot of Myrtlewood and walnut. I’ve never used either of the two woods you referenced. How are they for turning and particularly (as I do mostly segmented work) how do they do for glueing up?

Have your say...
