Reclining human form sculpture made with hardwoods and displayed on a granite base.
I was going for a striking effect with the colors in this piece. I like the way bright colors look when combined with more natural wood tones and have been very happy with the way birch dowel looks after being soaked in blue dye overnight. I discovered while doing this piece that if I put the dowel in the dye and then place it all in a vacuum chamber, the dye is absorbed in moments and much more uniformly than soaking alone.
