Hollow Form turned from Buckeye Burl

Out of stock

A truly superb example of Buckeye Burl, with all the figure and variation that defines this unusual root burl. Its color and figure come from an oxidizing of the minerals absorbed underground once it is harvested. This hollow form has an exceptionally small opening used in the hollowing process, but the final vessel—with extremely thin walls—is light as a feather. True hollow form turning is one the most challenging of woodturning techniques.

About the artist

Eric has been turning wood professionally for over 25 years, with a continually-evolving aesthetic and range of technical skills. His work has been featured in some of the finest art and craft galleries in the country. He regularly exhibits in juried shows including CraftBoston. His newest work features many turnings from two extraordinary woods: Buckeye Burl and Australian Burl caps, with their eye-catching natural edges. He has also begun creating mobiles turned from Buckeye spheroids—exceedingly time-consuming to make, but yielding fascinating woodturning in motion. His finishes are a source of special pride, and after sealing woods that require it, his finish is a mixture of beeswax and carnauba wax, mixed in a very gentle solvent. The result is a lustrous but fully transparent finish, soft and pleasing to the touch. ...Read MoreRead Less
