"Akai Maru" (Red Circle) 12-033

Michael Scarborough

2012    Size   H: 2.5 in  W: 5 in    Weight: 5 oz

Not for sale

This piece was created for the Robin Wood's CORES Recycled exhibit at The Center for Art in Wood. It began life as the core of an oak bowl from Robin's studio in England. The surface is my interpretation of the ancient Japanese Wakasa nuri decorative lacquer technique. As Urushi lacquer is far too toxic, I have created my own formula of finish that is applied and polished in the same manner as, and is indistinguishable from, natural Urushi.

This is the piece as it was sent to me from The Center.
