Wood Christmas Tree in Spalted Sugar Maple – Item 575
This Christmas tree is made of Spalted Sugar Maple and is 11-3/4" tall.
This is a magnificent tree with incredible patterns and texture in the wood. It is tall and slender and is perfectly shaped and rustic.
The patterns are from spalting which happens when maple is exposed to weather for a long period of time. This wood came from a very old tree that stood beside Jessup's orchard in Warwick, NY for over a hundred years before it died and was taken down. I was lucky enough to get some of the wood.
These handmade Christmas decorations are sure to be treasured family heirlooms.
This wood was cut several years ago and has sat outside my shop while I let nature work on it and give it incredible colors.
This tree has an incredible graining and color. It is finished with lacquer and hand rubbed to a satin luster.
Each hand turned tree has a fanciful shape.
It is finished with several coats of carefully hand rubbed lacquer finish to best show it off.
It is signed and numbered by the artist.
