Sensuous abstract redwood sculpture with a heart shaped apex thrusting above a contorted burl formation with several polished protrusions that appear similar to burning flames. In front of the heart, a simulated hand with three bent fingers creates a striking gesture. The wood sculpture exudes an abundance of energy with pulsating, dramatic highlighted areas that have been finely polished, producing sharp contrasts to the gnarled, rough burl wood body of the composition.
This elegant wood sculpture has been created with two redwood burls that have been carved with chain saws, shaped with grinders and hand crafted to further enhance the natural forms. After thorough sanding, the wood designs are assembled with multiple steel rods and sprayed with a durable clear oil, revealing all the natural wood colors and exotic grain patterns. The smooth, polished surface areas are later treated with a clear satin polyurethane that is applied by hand to accentuate and embellish certain areas of the sculpture design.
Due to the nature of redwood burls, each sculpture is totally unique and cannot be duplicated. Although it is possible to create similar designs, they will never be exactly the same.
All of the natural redwood used to create these sculptures has been reclaimed from the underground portions of fallen trees which have been victimized from winter storms, landslides or forest fires, therefor no living trees have been utilized.
