Buds Price-list


Poplar wood (Populus sp.), varnished and painted.
The object is made in 1998.
Also on view the related objects Flower, Insight and them gathered in a group.
These object had their first shaping while still wet, the wood fresh from the tree. The choice of the shape somehow influences the cracking during drying. After the drying the object is fine machined. Finally, the cracks the wood itself manifested, are brought to expression. Applying colour paint, after putting on varnish, intensifies it.
