From our series "Memories of Grandmother's Garden", this tulip-form is sculpted from a lathe-turned vase out of a Box Elder (from the Maple family). At the "tulip's" base inside is a Black Walnut disc inlaid with brass dots. Three playful geckos, inlaid with turquoise stone, climb in and out of the petals. Standing 11.5" high, 8" wide, and weighing 36 oz., the work is protected by several clear lacquer coats. The whimisical nature of this piece always amuses & generates comments from viewers.
