"SURPRISE SENSATION"
Carved from Choke Cherry, this vessel is Scotts' favorite thus far. The folds and bends show off the figure of the wood and the intricate carving that was done. A walnut bowtie was inlayed into a natural crack. Otherwise all the natural cracks were left alone. The piece sits atop a walnut base.
Approximately 18" tall with a diameter of 21"

"FLAMINGO DANCER"
Made from gorgeous Alligator Juniper Burl this beauty is 23x13x7 and stands on three legs. The ruffles of what I call "the skirt" shows off the burl and the inlayed turquoise makes the whole piece pop.

TWISTER
This Sculpture stood 5ft tall with a diameter of 3ft. It was carved from a very large Alligator Juniper Log, that was approximately 1200 years old and dead standing for some time. The vase shape was carved first. The curves that sweep up the sculpture were carved both on the inside and outside to mirror each other. Turquoise and Abalone Shell were inlayed into the cracks and voids and it stands on a Cherry Burl base.

ALL SHOOK UP
This sculpture carved from an Alligator Juniper Burl has so much movement created from the waves, folds and feet, that it looks like it's dancing.

FOREST REEF
This incredible sculpture was carved from a very large Alligator Juniper that was approximately 800 years old. The two large wavy openings lead to a tunnel in the middle. The bark was carefully left in tact during the carving process. Turquoise was inlayed into the cracks and layered on the bottom of the tunnel.
