This sculpted form from a lathe-turned vase reflects "storm power"! It is created from a large Maple tree on our farm, which was, indeed, damaged by a powerful storm. We have created several variations on the "Wild Thing" series as it is very popular, always well received, and has won awards in juried exhibitions. Simple lines of the design hide the "engineering" complexity of the work. At the base of this vessel, Pyrography [writing with fire] has simulated a dark, "forest-floor" beneath the up-lifted "arms". Clear coats of lacquer protect the work which stands 13' high, 7" wide, and weighs 26 oz.
