Wood sculpture - (Macrocarpa ) ver.1



Veronique Desmet is a Belgium artist currently living in New Zealand.

This stool was created where the artist and artisan meet. She found the timer after a bomb-fired on the property where she was based in Snail beach.


This Macrocarpa charred stamp has treated very special finish, that is not easy to achieve and require some skills to preserve it. 
The top is gilded, finished with lacquer and wax. The charred stamp is finished with a natural oil.
For maintenance, put a coat of wax on the top once or twice a year.

These stools reflect a sense of tradition, of respect and recognition of what is rare and the importance of preserving it. The quiet precious life cycle of the original tree is celebrated. Her art/decorative objects can be enjoyed as the carriers of knowledge and memories.
