Made from an old-growth, hand-salvaged Western Hemlock tree stump from the Tongass National Forest in Sitka, Alaska.
Zach took more than two years to complete this piece—allowing careful drying both before and after sculpting until the piece stabilized fully and could be completed.
You'll see why Zach has titled this piece Discovery I. Natural openings go almost to the middle of this piece, and one void goes right through the piece! Iridescent, feather-like figure in the rim give this fine piece a complexity that inspires curiosity and conversation.
Zach left a ring of chainsaw-finished edge on the rim of this piece. The smooth surfaces were finely sanded to a smooth polish and sealed with food-grade tung & citrus oils.
This is the very first piece in a limited Discovery series.
