Box Elder Maple

Salem Barker

2017    Size   H: 22 in  W: 7 in  D: 8 in

In a private collection

The vibrant fiery streaks of red are natural to this maple wood species. The redness exists only within several growth rings of the tree, which this sculptural form captures well. Box Elder's redness has been known to fade in time, so a carefully matched red dye has been applied using a fine airbrush with great care, so that the original impression is maintained, not exaggerated.
