Turned and sculpted Cherry Burl

Amphora

Turned, then sculpted in cherry burl, I found the raw piece on a waste pile of a logging project near Boone, NC. The same pile revealed another cherry burl for my future works that I worked into Amphora.

IN THE PRIVATE COLLECTION OF GAYE GRAVELY POLLITT

The form, as with most of my works, is highly influenced by the natural shape of the wood itself. The name is derived from Asian architectural styling.

It called so sweetly to my wife, Gaye, that she just “had to have it” for her own. How could I resist?
