Zipper Vases Honorable Mention at the Totally Turning Symposium 2016. This is a prestigious award at an annual woodworker event in Saratoga, NY. Twisted Sister, Skinny Jeans and Biker Chick receive recognition in the Instant Gallery.
Three sister wood vase were exhibited in the Instant Gallery. They are handmade on a lathe, carved and painted. Biker Chick Zipper Vase features a zipper, steel studs and findings. This vase captures the Harley Davidson motorcycle culture. Skinny Jeans is a faux denim piece and is a fashion statement piece about ubiquitous tight fitting jeans. Twisted Sister is a statement about the Rock and Roll culture. I enjoy making statements with my art. The sizes are the approximately 4- 5 inch diameters at the top by 12 – 16 inches tall tapering to a 3 inch base.
If you collect art or are starting out one of these zipper pieces belongs in your collection. Picture it as a centerpiece on a shelf. Surely it will be a cornerstone piece. This will make a wonderful gift for that special person in your life.
