Here's slice of red oak covered in red wax. When a tree is cut down and ripped into rough lumber the ends of the boards are coated in wax (or something similar) to prevent the wood from drying quickly. This piece of lumber was overly slathered in wax – it’s different – it looks cool. I kept it to the side.
The tree in its natural state. Then a board, unnatural, but useful for making things.
So what you see is naturally unnatural.
I applied the little walnut structures and inserted the copper wire and an industrial model was glued to life. A little industry turning the potential natural into useful unnatural.
During the production of this piece I slightly damaged an existing flaw in the wood. Care will need to be exercised to avoid further degradation.
Except for the wax, all wood is left unfinished. The piece is about 13-1/2" long and 6-1/2" wide. At its highest the sculpture is a little under 3". The back is signed, dated, and comes with a note about the piece.
This is a one of a kind piece, never an identical piece to be made.
