This truly is a one of a kind find. I made this from a piece of Maple Burl on my lathe. The intent was to make a dramatic piece that was not to big yet had a big voice. After turning this piece I carved in the grooves on the top and sanded the very center bowl shape. Next came Ebonizing by the burning of the piece. This is a step you must take great care or you can loose the whole piece you are working on thus far. After the piece cooled down I turned to my metallic paint and chose the Brightest Red I had available. After the paint dried for 24 hours came 5 coats of clear semi-gloss acrylic as a final finish.
The piece is 6 1/2" in diameter by 3" tall and weighs 12 oz.
The following are my thoughts when I created this piece and are not aimed at anyone individual but rather a epidemic disease that is taking over much of who we are.
The reason for this piece that I created was to demonstrate the rage that is burning in our country today. The Maple Burl is a very beautiful wood much like our country. The ebonizing of the wood is a demonstration of what is happening to our country by all the hatred that is coming out of this country in many different forms. The grooves on the top are a sign of how this hatred is spilling out on the whole. The Very Red Center is the very hatred itself. It is small and only a very small part of our great country. And just below the ebonized crust is our Beautiful Country and all of our Great People. We just need to remember that a small amount of hatred can burn our whole country. Let Love Win!
