In a private collection

Despite the rigidity of old growth Douglas Fir's straight grain, this design is an attempt to highlight wood's plasticity. The vine form creates great complexity out of simple lines and has long been a symbolic way for lovespoon carvers to indicate the idea of growth, renewal or fertility.
