The Universe Hears You - Deadwood Sculpture

 


This sculpture was created using a piece of dead wood found in the City Park Nature Preserve in New Orleans. It is 16" high and sits on a 12" x 9" jagged slate base. The color was created using crayons which were laid in place using a soldering iron and a heat gun to merge the colors. The process for this sculpture took approximately 15 hours total. 2 hours for the cleaning, 2 hours for the preservation of the wood using a spray epoxy and the remaining time devoted to the color process. 

The piece got its name because of the unusual features to the upper right that resemble and inner ear

When completed the whole sculpture went through a final preservation phase using a high gloss polyurethane to coat, seal and to bring the color out. 

The final sculpture weighs 2 Pounds can be purchased for $200 plus Shipping and Handling. Please be aware because of the weight and fragility of the piece, special care is taken to ship and avoid breaking. Please consider this before purchasing.
