Suspended sculptural form turned from Australian Gold Mallee Burl No. 2

December 15, 2020

This cap of Gold Mallee Burl from Australia has been turned to a very thin dimension in order to be properly balanced on a base of Cocobolo Rosewood and a cut-off piece of Gold Mallee Burl. Given how heavy the wood is, this piece is remarkably light and perfectly balanced. There are many steps in creating such a turning, but the final product is well worth the effort.

10" at its widest; 6" at its narrowest; 4.5" high
