Gambel Oak Vase

This was turned from one of the most unusual burls I’ve ever turned. It was about 14″ of burl growing from the side of a small 5″ Gambel Oak tree trunk. The vase ended up about 8″ wide by 7″ tall.

Gambel Oak Rootball Vase

Gambel Oak is a common wood found in Utah. This was turned from the root ball of a small Gambel Oak, the part that is just under the ground that the roots spread out from. It’s about 8″ diameter by 6″ tall.

Osage Orange Spider

This was my first attempt as an entry to the Hogle Zoo’s annual (2008)  “World of the Wild” art show. This was awarded the “Employees Choice” award. The spider is made from Osage Orange with small Rosewood points at the elbows and Rosewood claws. She’s also wearing bracelets (captive rings) on her front legs. The beady eyes and tongue are Redheart. She’s about 10″ tall.
