This project involved a large cedar round that was actually multiple trees that grew closely together. Colored epoxy was used to help bind the separations into a single form. A geometric welded steel base completes the look – it’s simple lightweight structure supports the heavy top while keeping the eye drawn upwards towards the deep lustre of the wooden piece.
Tinting the epoxy with a light amount of blue paint transformed the clear look into a river that runs through the cedar. What a great contrast between the wood and the blue tint!
