Chrysochroa Table

Unusual  custom request!     Lots of problem solving and experimenting went into this piece.  I made several samples and models to clarify the process and jigs to match fit the walnut, beech and maple.

Mixed media includes:  legs-  sculpted polystyrene and fiberglass matte over a metal armature;  body-  book-matched black walnut, curly beech;  thorax- bird’s-eye maple;  head and eyes-  carved bass-wood, dichroic glass cabachons and onyx beads;  antennae- form-bent and carved walnut veneer layers.           Iridescence is achieved by air-brushing metallic and interference paints.

Material: mixed-media
Dimensions (h x w x d): 18″ x 54″ x 24″
Year Made: 2010
