“Monument Valley” - Flame Sheoke Burl (Australia) - 14 x 5 x 2 - Original and unusual this large spoon uses stunning sapwood weathering which revealed intact medullary rays as a miniaturized landscape on the side of the handle. The burl eyes shown on each side of the handle bowl create streaks across the bottom of the bowl. Bold forms ending in a decorative carved detail on the end of the handle, Monument Valley is at once bleak and lush and rich. A powerful piece.  Photography by Jim Osborn.

 

Note: "Monument Valley" was accepted for inclusion in Beyond Boundaries, a Collectors of Wood Art sponsored exhibition to be held at SOFA Chicago 2014. Selections were made by Emily Zilber, the Ronald C. and Anita L. Wornick Curator of Contemporary Decorative Arts at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. With applications from over 100 artists, Emily had to make many difficult decisions among the hundreds of high quality works submitted. 25 artists' work will appear in the show. The works chosen exemplify creativity, outstanding workmanship, and aesthetically appealing design elements. Aligning with the theme of "Beyond Boundaries", the works are diverse in object type, use of material, technicality, and conceptual approach. The dates for SOFA 2014 are: Opening Preview Night - Thursday, November 6th, 5-9pm; General Fair - Friday, November 7th through Sunday, November 9th. Additional information regarding this special wood art event will be posted at the CWA site and here as it is made available.
