Sculptures & Artwork
This is a retirement gift I did recently. I was told there were five generations of pharmacists in the family. I knew there were probably far too many mortar and pestles in their gift collections! People come to me for gifts that will really make an impression.
After considerable thought this is what I came up with. Sparing you lots of details here are a few highlights. I decided the base could be like the tray they count pills on. I made the capsule and two “main” pills. I balanced it out with three small pills with the recipients name spelled out with one letter on each pill.
I like to hear about the person you are honoring. Let me think about some ideas on how to create a piece that will really surprise them and make them happy. Why do ordinary gifts when you can do extraordinary?
This piece has lemons, limes, and oranges carved into the heel. It isn’t available just yet.
Perfect for awards, trophies and unique gifts of appreciation.
This piece was about 6- 1/4″ tall, wide, and deep. It had a beautiful Curly Maple base with a Cherry Sphere. I would engrave on the base or engrave on a piece of metal and add that. I add a nice piece of leather like material on the bottom of all sculptures. When you set it on a table it exudes quality. It’s a very different feeling than a wood piece with nothing or little silicone or felt patches.
Something like this would be in the $150-$175 range.
Masur Birch is not a particular species of birch, but is rather a grain figure that is most commonly seen in Downy Birch and Silver Birch. I love the way it looks. I enjoyed having high heel shoes perched on it because we all know they don’t belong there. So many things in life are not how we expect them to be and I was accentuating that fact in this piece. The carved stiletto feet grace the curved bottom. This piece is not for sale yet.
The heel and ring are made from Brazilian Tulipwood which is one of the prettiest woods in the world in my opinion. This is actual size. It is not for sale yet.
Not for sale at this time.
This pair of shoes has a secret battery pack enclosed. It features flashing red LED lights. The walnut heels are carved and bleached showing the universal symbol for high voltage. The turned electrical cord and plugs appear to plug in to each shoe. Their connection is very electric and is creating a high voltage situation where both shoes are literally starting to come off the ground. Not for sale at this time.
