Emerge measures just 3.5" tall by 2.25" wide, and weighs just 32 grams. This ornament was created from sumac (the emerging flower) and an unknown hardwood species (leaves & stem). The globe, or the flower, was turned and hollowed on the lathe, then carved using a Dremel tool. The leaves/stem were turned on the lathe as well and carved using a Dremel tool, riffles, and sanded to 400 grit. I used a variety of alcohol ink colors by Adirondak to dye the wood along with iridescent ink by Liquitex Professional to add an irredescent shimmer to the piece.
