Woodworker: Dan SouthernA stone lantern encountered on a trip to a Japanese garden inspired this turned box (5-1⁄2 in. dia. by 7-1⁄2 in. tall). But the handle was born from another source: a photo of a pendant in a jewelry-making book. This is typical of Southern, who often blends contemporary lines with primitive art styles in his pieces, which include intricate carved insect sculptures, tikis, masks, and other sculptures. This box is made of big-leaf maple burl and ebony. The finish is linseed oil. To see more of Southern’s work, go to woodenaddictions.com.
