“LILLY OF THE VALLEY”
This gorgeous piece was created from “Forest Reclaimed” Juniper wood with a cherry burl base. It stands approximately 36″ T x 30″ Diameter. It consists of folds and bends that sweep and curve up the piece both inside and outside. Some bark and a limb were were left intact for that natural element. This piece really stands out and makes a statement.
These are pictures showing how a funnel shaped vessel is created. The chainsaw is used to cut up the right log and then start the funnel shape.

Here a grinder is used to create spirals that will curve up the piece
Here Scott is using the chainsaw to carve out the bulk of the wood on the inside of the vessel. Being careful to not go through.
A grinder is now being used to carve out more wood and start the shaping.
The spirals on the vessel are taking shape and you can see how the piece will look once complete.
Here the inside of the vessel is being shaped with a grinder. Bends and folds are created with finess being careful to not go through. These bends and folds narrow down to the bottom.
Once the piece is done shaping and smoothed out, turquoise is inlayed into the natural cracks and voids. Then the piece is painstakingly sanded to a smooth finish and finally a spray finish is applied to ensure that all areas are covered. And now it is ready for someones home or office.
