Truly of labor of love!
A note from the artist: A burl is a rare and unique growth found on the side of a tree. As it matures, its dense and irregular cell structure transforms the burl wood with its distinct and intricate grain pattern. We turn and sand each burl to unveil a truly spectacular and one of a kind piece that will be cherished for generations.
We buried this burl in the ground under wood shavings to age and darken. Once aged to our satisfaction, we turn, dry, sand and finish the burl over the course of a month.
