This arizona walnut root burl appeared to be an excavated black bomb with tentacles when i found it loitering near the 55 gallon tubs of water thatpreserve my green wood burls.  It had probably been sunbathing in the high desert of New Mexico for 5 years.

Fire and then flooding is nature at its most dramatic. It was a bonus for wood turning!

Flooding happens often in our valley. Either after heavy rains from the summer monsoon season or a warm rain on the snow pack in winter. This is one source of gathering wood to create Kenny's one of a kind art pieces.

It takes 6 months to a year for Kenny to complete one of his beautiful turned wood sculptures. He works from a potters 'eye', which he was for 45 years. He now excavates burls and root burls to uncover the beauty hidden within.
