Maple / Maple Burl / Oak / Found Wood / Solid Surface Base / Acrylic Paint
Depicting a hammer smashing the virus into pieces, this work represents our hope as we navigate the current pandemic. Made entirely of wood (including the hammer) and mounted on a solid-surface base. This piece is part of a larger “Art for our Unusual Times” virtual exhibition at www.dougpisik.com/covidart. Creating this work required multiple woodworking techniques including traditional lathe work, offset turning, bandsaw sculpting and hand-chisel shaping.
