orange birch laminate
Please click on the images for a more detailed view.
This has been one of my favorite forms over the last couple years.
Birch wood, being very blonde in color, accepts dyeing superbly. Thin layers are soaked in a water based dye, followed by laminating. The sculpture is designed to reveal patterns that compliment the form.
The finishing product upon this piece is a UV resistant urethane, much like automotive clear coat. The base is lathe-turned aluminum.
