Cremation Of A Violin
2013 Size H: 6 in W: 25 in D: 10 in
This sculpture was carved from a single block of wood. There are no laminations. It is modeled after a full size violin, also referred to as 4/4. I use no paint, instead I apply a 2 part artist bleach to the "linen cloth" part, which leaves it pearl white. After the neck and scroll was carved, it was charred using a propane torch. A cathartic experience. The charred wood was then stabilized and finished.
