Reclaimed wood wall sculpture.
Reclaimed black acacia, agave flower stalk, birch and fir wood. Pigments.
20.5 x 20.5 x 2 in.
Reclaimed black acacia, agave flower stalk, birch and fir wood. The fir was once a magnificent tree turned into a shipping pallet and discarded. The fir tree rings record 35 years of some period in time with one drought year. The acacia was a tree in Beverley Hills, CA. someone decided to cut down and put on a curb, the agave lived naturally in the wild, where the flower stalk completed it's work, fell into the Pacific Ocean and washed up on the beach and most was transformed into an agave wood surfboard . The birch wood square base spent many a year as part of a kitchen cabinet. Such beautiful and quality materials, mostly saved from a landfill. Framed in old growth fir, once a door from a California 20th Century home. And oh, the paint, shellac, Osmo coat are reclaimed too as they were half cans left over after "someone's job was finished", yet I reclaimed those too. All in all 99% upcycled materials become eco art.
