“Holy Grail” A Pierced Sculpture made from Mesquite

July 12, 2012

“Holy Grail” is a great name for this piece. Originally we named it “Pierced”. Kind of blaw, but naming things isn’t our strong suit. So an artist friend saw this at it’s first appearance in Santa Monica CA and said this is the Holy Grail. And it’s because of him that we changed the name on this piece. It is made from Mesquite and stands 33″ tall and has a diamter of 14″. The mesquite log it was made from had a little rotted area that we filled in with black epoxy and some beautiful yellow sap wood that you can see in this picture. In an older post I had some construction photos of Scott working on this piece. Boy did it take a lot longer than expected to create this. Drilling and then shaping all those holes was very time consuming. I started calling him the Holy Man, because that is all he did, was make holes all day. This piece came out spectacular. Being our first sculpture to pierce (Scott just had to do something large the first time), I have to admit I’m going to have a hard time parting with this one. Every time I look at it, I’m amazed. It got a lot of attention at the show in CA and many praises. I don’t expect we’ll have it much longer.

“Clam It Up”

This vessel was created a few months ago, but we wanted professional photos of it. It looks much better in this photo and shows off the clam shape that Scott created, along with the inlayed Abalone shell. He was careful to leave the bark on, which is very hard. This is a great piece and isn’t to large at only 18x12x9.

We are in the process of creating several new pieces right now for upcoming shows. So stay tuned for what Scott comes up with next. There are some really cools designs in the works.
