This sculpture was made with American Ash. It was taken right from the log and long grain was selected for steam bending. I used a modified strap to bend from the center of a piece of stock. No this piece is not a bent lamination, it is solid ash, steamed and bent on a form. It is free-standing because of a weighted piece of lead in the bottom. I also make wall pieces in a similar manner.
