I was thrilled when a friend asked me to do a commission piece to fill a large wall space in the front foyer of their home. 6 feet for the height and about 1 foot wide was the set criteria. The rest was left to my artistic freedom.
The result is this organic layered piece displaying an array of textures and grains from pallet wood,
except for one piece. The smallest of the assortment boasts "virgin plywood" and as my friend pointed out, appears to be announcing its presence visually and physically. Instantly a conversation piece.
Constructed like the skidsaw table top, with wood biscuit jointed together and then captured and secured in a welded steel frame.
Delivered and hanging up I'm looking forward to seeing it in it's new home.
One of the simple pleasures in life is the sharing of wine with friends. It appears to also be one of the world’s oldest pastimes. In 2007, inside a cave in Armenia, archeologists uncovered fermentation vats, a wine press, storage jars and pottery sherds. They were dated from approximately 6,100 years earlier.
If a Rock Bottom Vessel has ever reminded you of time spent in your high school science class, there’s a very good reason! The glass flasks that we use at Studio50 are made of “science glass” – that is, borosilicate glass (often referred to as “boro” glass.)
