"Young Sequoia II " - Red Mallee Burl Wood Wall Hanging (WH12)

"The Sweetheart Tree " - Burl Wood Wall Hanging (WH06)

"Autumn Red Maple Leaf " - Burl Wood Wall Hanging (WH02)

A tribute to the Giant Sequoias of the Sierra Nevadas, this 1" thick wall hanging of Red Mallee Burl slab is an example of nature's work to be cherished. The burl figure is excellent across the entire piece; the edges of the piece are the natural spiky texture of the burl, as found directly under its bark.


Bigleaf Maple burl is some of the prettiest the western USA has to offer. Click the closeup thumbnail below to see the figure in this piece.
The edges are the natural burl texture and shape (which suggests a large-crowned tree to me). 
Finished in a semi-gloss sheen. A bit over 3/4 inch thick, with hook on rear side, ready for hanging.

Height:  19 inches     Width:  17 inches

"Young Sequoia II " - Red Mallee Burl Wood Wall Hanging (WH12)

Bobby Darin sang a version of "The Sweetheart Tree", the opening lyrics of which are, "They say there's a tree in the forest, a tree that will give you a sigh...".   This wallhanging brings such a tree to mind. It's a sweetheart of a burl, an Australian Vasticola (a Eucalyptus species). And of course, its form is that of a nice, bushy  tree.  The edges of the piece are the natural spiky texture of the burl, and the figure in the heartwood is superb.

Finished in a gloss sheen. Approximately 1 inch thick, with hook on rear side, ready for hanging.

New Englanders know that when the Maples in the swamps are turning red, the curtain is about to come down on summer, and autumn is nigh.
When I saw this beautiful slab of Australian Gummy Coolibah burl, an image immediately formed in my mind-- of a walk through the woods on a crisp, cool fall day, shuffling along in the fallen leaves of those swamp Red Maples. Red Maple leaves will turn red or yellow in the fall; often, individual leaves will have both colors. The honey-golden margins and warm red heart of this burl piece take me right to those woodland haunts.
