In our home we decorate by the season, with collections of pottery, wood turnings, blown glass etc. rotating throughout the year, this piece was designed to display. Primarily based around a one hundred and two inch radius which allowed all the parts to be bent and shaped from a single pattern.
My process includes paging through my lumber collection regularly trying to make a match between materials and ideas. Hickory is a wood that I have not considered before but had collected a few outstanding boards from Michigan and Wisconsin over the years.
Hickory has been relegated to flooring, hammer handles and smoking meat but I think its color, grain and beauty offer more. I also discovered Hickory is more prevalent in Minnesota than I knew, wandering the woods around Pickwick recently I was surprised by its abundance.
