Materials Used: Cherry, Alder, and Purple Heart
I rarely make items that are not “functional”, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to create Reeds. I had attempted a steam bent lamination with purple heart strips for another project that failed miserably. I was preparing to cut the scrap up and throw it away when the thought occurred to me that the purple heart strip looked a lot like the stem of a flower. The strips combined with an angular top resembles a cubist interpretation of a cattail.
