Step Well Series # 4 - Wankaner Palace
2014 Size H: 11 in W: 12 in D: 10.5 in
Available for Purchase
My fourth step well box is based on a much later example from a nineteenth century palace, where it is more a sort of cloistered cistern in the middle a private residence than a public step well. I kept to the very graceful proportions of the space and the number of levels and arched bays while changing other design and decorative features. The box has three stacked levels, and each level is a tray. The outer wood is a figured cherry, and the inner is maple. This box marks the inauguration of my new lathe, used to make the columns, the dome, and two fountains.
