|“Pod” - Amboyna Burl Spoon – Indonesia - 11 x 4 x 4.5 -
Wood purchased from Dan Kvitka in the late 1990s - this is glorious
Amboyna burl with rich heart sap transition – the form is a hybrid of
many seed pods I’ve seen – divided containers with pockets - I didn’t
see it as I was working but after the fact I see a dancer on tip – toes
also – sometimes the subconscious is at work as well.
