Item Name: Blue Heron Intarsia
Item Number: 400
Thank you to James Stickney of Brookdale Intarsia, located in Norwood, NY for our next item up for bids. This is a beautiful blue heron created in the Intarsia style. This process involves the selection of natural wood grains and colors to obtain the desired effect. Pieces are individually cut and contoured. All of the pieces are natural wood colors that have three coats of a hand rubbed varnish finish. Intarsia is like painting with wood. This particular piece stands 23 inches high and is 15 inches at its widest part. This blue heron is crafted from basswood, cherry, walnut, butternut, sycamore, yellow heart and mahogany woods.
