This is a small box measuring about 14" x 5" x 5" made primarily of Canarywood with Paua Abalone inlay with hand cut, ground and polished travertine cabochon “petals” and obsidian “seeds”. There is a removable inner tray fitted with soft green pigskin. Finished with wipe on poly and waxed.
This piece is an exercise in simple shapes from different places, of different color, working together to create harmony.
It was chosen to be displayed at the "Artistry in Wood" exhibit held at the Museums of Sonoma in Santa Rosa 2018-2019.
This particular piece is not for sale. Please inquire for a commissioned and specialized piece.
