"Extra" - Artist Proofs, Samples, One-offs, Fun stuff
This listing is a catch-all for everything we make that doesn't fall into a "real" categories.
Artist Proofs: Before being content with a design, often times it takes a few versions to get it right. Other times, I'll cut out small "sample" sections to see what changes need to be made. Some go right into the dumpster. Others turn out great.
Personality of wood: Many of the pieces you'll see in this listing simply show small variations natural to working with wood. They might range from wood grain patterns, different colorings, knots, etc. To me, these pieces are 100% but I don't want to surprise a customer. So, I'll list them here at a slight discount and point out why it is in this listing. Some of my favorite pieces I've ever made would have been listed through this page if I had thought of it sooner.
So, rather than uselessly filling up the studio with artwork, I hope you'll find some enjoyment in these. As you select different options from the drop down menu, the details will change.
Details for each:
-- Lunas Streak (15.5x15.5") --This Lunas has a different final color than normal with grain streaks that are shown in the closeup. She looks great but does not "fall in line" with her sisters. Has minor wood variations.
-- Ambedo Pop (15.5x7.75") --Also looks great and has a one layer that pops more than the rest. You can see in the closeup that it adds a bit of interest to those details.
-- Peril Proof #1 (15.5x5.5") -- This was one of a few proofs while creating "Peril". It is the same "interior" design as the final but has negative space where there is a dark stain in the final. We almost went this way with the final design as the missing area ads interest.
SOLD -- Peril Texture (15.5x5.5") -- This is a Peril piece that is almost the same as what is listed on the site. However, she has more "texture" on the inside. Either from minerals or another abnormality during the tree's growth. She looks great.
SOLD --"Grain" Worm (15.5x5.5") -- This is a pretty standard Grain Under Sun with the exception that there are "wormholes" on the surface. In the closeups, you can see that there are more grain variations than what is listed on the site. Looks neat but I didn't want to surprise someone that wasn't expecting them.
SOLD-- Artist Proof#1 (15.5x15.5") -- This is a small section from Alleviation. I cut this out to see if the laying looked correct before cutting the full sized piece. They fulfilled there need and actually look pretty interesting. Comes ready to hang all 4 directions.
SOLD-- Artist Proof#2 (15.5x15.5") -- Same idea as #1. This is a small section from Alleviation. I cut this out to see if the laying looked correct before cutting the full sized piece. They fulfilled there need and actually look pretty interesting. Comes ready to hang all 4 directions.
SOLD-- #1 Lunas (15.5x15.5") -- This Lunas has a different final color than what is listed on the website. She looks great but does not "fall in line" with her sisters. Has minor wood variations.
SOLD-- Ambedo #1 (15.5x7.75") -- Also looks great but has a different final coloring than the "normal" Ambedos. Also has tiny wormholes through the first layer of veneer which is makes it pretty interesting compared to the other ones.
