Wrapped Walnut

By Bob Rotche

Winning Category

This walnut hollow vessel measures 10" tall x 5" in diameter. The lid is turned from African blackwood and is topped with a deer antler tip wrapped in hemp. The main form is wrapped in jute twine with the section being framed by bands of lines burned with a skew pyrography tip. The intent being juxtaposition of a tribal feel of the coarse natural fibers, pyrography and antler with the clean contemporary style of the high hard edged vessel with rounded lid and carved integral feet. The finish is Danish oil which has been buffed to give it a soft sheen.
