This piece is made from a single piece of Mahogany measuring 26”x26”x 10/4” which I discovered being tossed away as scrap at a prestigious, if not practical, craft school. The first two images are of the completed piece, the second being a detail shot. The other four pictures are sequential images of the progress of the piece over the many months of its evolution. I have another equally large piece of “scrap” that I found with this one That I am starting to make plans for.
The finish on this piece, as with most of my work, is an interior finish made by Land Ark, with the background painted with an undercoat of black tempera paint. I still have not settled on a title for this piece, hence the multiple-choice title option!
