1 in stock

Like the other Gold Mallee Burl cap form in my CraftBoston listings, this turning is essentially sculptural in form, with irregular dimensions preserving the natural edge of the burl cap. The quality of figure in this wood is exceptional, even by the high standards of extraordinary Australian burl caps (which come from a range Eucalyptus species). It is a full foot at its widest dimension; 9 inches at its narrowest. The exceedingly high quality of figure and color dictate a simpler shaping in turning. 12” wide at its widest | 9” wide at its narrowest x 2” high.

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
