unfinished PANELED PLANTER

March 6, 2014 | 0 Comments

Designed with a paneling process that covers a solid 1/4″ core, this piece was created from an assemblage of 1/8″ salvaged wood slabs. With a construction technique more akin to collage, I hope to create visually dynamic fields and continue to explore this methodology on future projects.

Re-purposed Wood mini-Planter 5″x 3″x 6.5″ This piece was made from a salvaged wood print & illustrates the kind of reclaimed material I try to source, old weathered materials that possess a quality you can’t mimic. I tried to let the incidental shape of my source material guide the design, and am open to letting the materials at hand shape how they are re-purposed.
PANELED PLANTER BOX

The latest in a series of salvaged panel planter boxes. Measuring 6″ wide 8.5″ tall  & 4.5″ deep, it’s designed as a wall hanging planter that you could just as easily place on the ground. The bottom drainage is polypropylene fabric whose permeable surface facilitates quick drainage & helps curb moisture levels.

A laser etched, wall-mounted, business sign/planter box. Constructed from mahogany & features a ‘black eyed susan’ flowering plant, growing along the guide line to eventually circl the channel of the frame. I chose mahogany for it’s open grain, rich warmth & relative quietness as a grain. The laser etched logo was left unfinished (and meticulously sanded) to preserve the quality of the exposed grain.
