SOLD. Tiger Maple Cherry Burl Spirit Bird Sculpture. 27" Wingspan.
Cherry Burl Sphere resting on 27" Wingspan Tiger Maple Spirit Bird set upon Cherry Burl Pedestal. To sculpt and complete the Spirit Bird, I first cut timber into the outer shape of the Spirit Bird and attach it to the lathe. With well-placed super bright lights to better reveal “ghost imaging” I patiently sculpt the elegant wings with hand held cutting tools at about 2000 rpm, exhilarating! Then I formed the Cherry Burl base to hold the Spirit Bird Wing and a Cherry Burl Sphere to finish the stacked piece. 27" L x 8" W x 8.75" H
