Roman, Saxon and Asian Inspiration

_MG_7805w

_MG_7805w  This vessel is inspired by pottery found in an old Roman signal station near Scarborough Castle.  It is made from American Beech and flamed to give it a rich color and aged look.

 

_MG_7815w  This vessel was inspired in part by a Saxon urn that dates to around 400 A.D.  I modified the form some and added a few details to give it a little Southwest flavor.  It is made from American Beech and was flamed to give it it’s rich color and aged look.  It also features a small copper inlay.

_MG_7832w  Basswood with bark inclusions and a small copper inlay.  The form draws on elements of Asian architecture.
