The vessel has been sold. For interest in this particular design: [email protected]
This project was made possible, thanks to the 2 species of wood supplied in an exchange project between 3 woodworkers in Portland Oregon, U.S and 3 woodworkers in Utrecht The Netherlands. http://utrecht-portland.com/ The idea for all involved was to make an object with slabs of 2 species. Oregonian Myrtle wood and local harvested Maple combined. The largest part of inspiration comes from the native tribes in Oregon,and by looking at some old symbols the tribes use(d).
The name 'continental' was inspired by the project itself, and the lines and colors in the wood used.Which i found looking like a map.
The stopper was inspired by where the maple came from, a tree on a childrens playground in Utrecht. It also resembles the merging of the 2 species for me. The Process - this wasMy more a project that evolved slowly, as i went along. The basic idea i had was to make something tribal. I really enjoy this type of process, letting your thoughts and choices at each particular stage decide the final outcome. Without forcing yourself to stick to pre-made drawings/designs.
