Red Egg, Multi Drawer Mini Chest, Hand Carved Wood Sculpture by Steve Turner

$4,800

About

White ash is a hardwood native to North America with light color and even grain, this ovalular sculpture is created from laminating layers of wood and hand carving and shaping the surface to bring out the natural beauty of the wood's graceful structure. The drawers are laser cut and fit seamlessly into the surface. The rich, red color brings out the woods natural grain. The sculpture is varnished to a glossy surface. This functioning object could store small collectables and would be ideal as a men's valet chest or as jewelry box. Steve Turner Egg in red Laminated white ash Measures: 20 H x 12 W x 12 D in 50.80 H x 30.48 W x 30.48 D cm Artist statement The pursuit of art is a lifelong journey for me. An early introduction to sculpting by my father set me on a path that I would follow for a lifetime. My education at The School of the Art Institute in Chicago brought me some early success and attention. My career as a writer and art director for a large advertising agency took off early life but it was sculpting that always fed my passion. Wood has been my medium of choice and it is the material I feel most comfortable working with. By nature, wood has a quality of unruliness to it, knots and swirls, rough textures and variation in color, but when working with it, it also allows you to discover its structure and to bring out its beauty. In this way working with wood reminds me of working through the struggles of daily life. Steve Turner.
