Big leaf maple and cherry wood bowl with a decorative finial.

“So beautiful to create. You will just die when you.” –Daniel Harris, wood worker.

Reversible top has a battery operated LED candle. 

 

“Fellow wood worker and friend shared the idea to make the finial top with a dual purpose. Includes an extra battery”  —Daniel Harris

 

 

 

Wood turned bowls by Daniel Harris.

Signed by the artist.  Each bowl is one of a kind using big leaf maple, holly, spalted maple, spalted pine and plum woods.

 

Indeed, “it stands to reason– fungus in furniture cannot  possibly be a good thing.  But if fungi take hold as a tree starts to die and the process is arrested just as the tree sets up natural chemical barriers within itself to contain the infestation, then they imbue the grain of the timber with all the drama of finely veined marble.  Prized for fine woodworkers, this process is called spalting, and the transformation is especially magical in humble woods.”  — Avinash Rajagopal/ Metropolis

 

Strike off featuring a close up of a remarkable  coffee table top with inlaid shells by Ted Lively.

Materials are found in the beauty of decay, using vacated zone lines that the tree offered in its spalting process, the gifted wood artist will apply turquoise and/or crushed abalone shells and finishes the surface with a water based lacquer.

Table surface is created from a root wad that includes the root mass or root ball of a tree plus a portion of the trunk. Producing such a special wood surface, is no easy task.  The tree must be cut down within a certain amount of time in order not to compromise the stability and quality of the  root wad wood.

SOLD April 2018!

 

Fun fact:  Ted Lively, wood artist, learned to craft root wads while working as a stump-grinder.
