This is a follow on from an earlier piece titled “Upright” A lidded hollow vessel in NZ Rimu, the two side sections are carved and fixed to a black corian leg. The vessel is again fixed to the leg via a couple of rose head copper nails cut down. Thought I would add a lid &amp; finial to give a bit more lift &amp; a point of difference. O/all height is about 220mm, or a bit under 9”.

It is trying to represent our Koru in a Pounamu material (greenstone), which was a favourite material with the Maori carvers, it is a slightly stylised / streched version been carved &amp; stained with a “blotchy” green dye, I have added some doodle pyro work around it with some dark red dye to help the embelishment. The bottom is just a bit of simple texture with a Paua dot. The Koru is the Maori symbol for new life. It give the appearance of having several cracks thru the piece, these are however gum / resin type streaks ( apart from the obvious hole in the bowl) Timber is Native Rimu, the finish is a laquer spray cut back &amp; mop finished, the size is 10” x 2” deep.
