Wenge Jive by Kerry Vesper. This wood sculpture ripples across the wall with a flourish. The artist hand cuts layers of Baltic birch and *wenge wood*, then meticulously stacks and glues them together before carving and sanding them into the final form. The piece has a protective clear tung oil/urethane finish and has keyhole brackets for mounting. Can be hung in any orientation. Requires no maintenance.
I first carved this traditional design for person facing heart surgery. The ‘mirrored’ knot motif serves as a reminder that both friends and family hold the person’s heart in prayer and support. It is carved on both sides as a reminder of those who are both near and far. It is 5 x 5.5 inches. It is made of white birch and finished with tung oil. Celtic Heart: $75
Anthropomorphic chair designed by Sergio Gill. It resembles a reclining female figure. Gill used a software program that scanned the female body, then translated it into another stylizing software program called AlphaCAM. Finally, Gill used a birch plywood model with a tung oil furniture finish.
