Miniature Footed Bowl
Made of Tagua Nut & Paduak
Tagua nuts are seeds of Ivory Palm in South America. They are now often used as an animal tusk substitute.
Miniature Vase made of Tagua Nut
Tagua nuts have an interior void and are irregular in shape. The above vase is created with its beautiful husk intact.
A burl is a tree growth in which the grain has grown in a deformed manner. A burl results from a tree undergoing some form of stress. It is filled with small knots. Burl is difficut to turn due to the uneven density in the wood. It chips easily.
Miniature Bi-Color Spiral Pedestals are made with utmost precision. The core of the pedestal has to fit perfectly into the open twist. The top and the base are doweled to the stem to ensure a long lasting bond.
