Damsel in D’Trees #429

Damsel in D’Trees #429

Piece #429 – Bradford Pear with Calcite crystal inlay – 10″ by 6″ by 1″ – SOLD

 

This piece developed wings over time. No pun intended. I sliced a Bradford tree limb into about four flat pieces. The idea was to make small hor d’oeuvres trays. That never panned out. I put this piece on the lathe and gave it a slight concave shape. Then I cut the circle groove for mineral inlay. I lost interest and set it aside. It was a dust collector for about two years.  When I got the idea for “Rose Among Thorns” Piece #427, I needed to try out the 3D carving effect. I saw the Bradford Pear on the shelf, grabbed a pencil and sketched the tree sprigs around the circle I had made. An idea was born. One thing led to another. The Damsel Fly is a species of dragon fly. Did you catch the play on  words? (Damsel in Distress)
