Unique abstract redwood sculpture with a slanted, faceted burl wood apex twisting around a crescent shaped root which has been mounted on a polished, angular wood formation. There are distinct contrasts between the polished geometric pieces and their rugged natural burl counterparts. This intriguing sculpture has been composed with several redwood burls which have been cut and carved with chain saws, shaped with grinders and hand crafted to further enhance the natural forms. After final preparation, the wood designs are assembled with multiple steel rods. The redwood components have been sprayed with a durable clear oil and hand rubbed, producing a matte finish which reveals all the natural colors and exotic grain patterns.
Upon viewing this sculpture from different positions, the character changes with each new perspective. Due to the nature of redwood burls, each sculpture is one of a kind and cannot be duplicated. Although it is possible to create similar designs, they will never be exactly the same. All of the natural redwood used to create these sculptures has been reclaimed from the underground portions of fallen trees which have been victimized from winter storms, landslides or forest fires, therefor no living trees have been utilized.
All sculptures are signed and numbered by Daryl Stokes and include color brochure with an artist certificate of authenticity. Previously Sold-Picture For Reference Only-Original Retail Price-$850-
