“Divided” Juniper Carved vessel-This one was at the base of the tree were the trunk split off into two. Thus the name “Divided”. The middle has beautiful burling and turquoise was inlayed into the cracks. The piece was initially carved out with a chainsaw and then grinders were used to finish the shaping. A lot of sanding was done, down to a fine grit and then a finish was applied in several coats to give it a nice sheen. This Juniper wood came from “Forest Cleanup” here in the Sacramento mountains.
