Bodacious Green at Artistree Gallery

Just delivered to Artistree Gallery...the Bodacious Green White Pine slab table by Wayne Walma. This table is in Wayne's sophisticated rustic style in which he works with the whole tree.  Note that the lines of this table reflect the natural characteristics of the tree.  The White Pine was harvested from our 40 acre woods.  White Pine is a soft wood that, with use, achieves a golden honey color patina. The knots are susceptible to bleeding (think sap) when exposed to higher than normal temperature. Therefore, this table is not destined for strong, direct sunlight.  Do appreciate the patina and richness as the wood ages and gathers nicks and bruises that come with human interaction.

The Fourth of July Farm by Pam, & a jaunty Sunflower art quilt by Toni Bergeon graces the tabletop.  The center of the sunflower is beaded by hand!

We were amused to receive our copy of American Craft, the publication of The American Craft Council, with "Bodacious Bespoke Bikes" inside the issue.  Looks like Wayne is not the only one working in a bodacious manner.
