Gary Bills sees beauty in a tree's "imperfections"--burls, knots, rough edges, spalting--and uses his skills as a woodworker to enhance these beauty marks. Where 5 branches splayed out star-like from the trunk of this Norfolk Island Pine we find dramatic, reddish rays around the shoulder of this vase.
This piece is intended for decorative purposes only; it is not water-tight. It is hollow, and can hold dried plants and grasses, though it is beautiful on its own!
8 5/8 in. high and 7 3/4 in. in diameter.
Signed, and comes with an artist statement.
