Art by Clive Grey
Kinetic wood art. There are no stains or dyes used in this piece. The colors you see are the actual colors of each piece of wood with only a clear finish. It is powered by one AAA battery. There are solar cells in the frame which will power it when outside or in a brightly lit room.
This stylized piece with its multitude of color and physical depth is inspired by the complexities and chaos of colors in nature. The backboard is made of a recycled commercial counter-top. The stems are recycled redwood. The flowers are made from small pieces of just about every type of wood in my shop.
Made of Birch, Wenge, Yellowheart, Gocolvo Alves, Lignum Vite, Paduk, White Oak, Black Walnut, Bloodwood, Purpleheart, Canarywood, Mahogany and Lacewood This piece required many of the various wood working techniques available today
I created this piece out of wenge, bloodwood, yellowheart, lignum vitae sapele, mahogany, white oak, canary wood and purple heart.
Made from Sapele and Maple.
