Heron 131 250.00
Variegated Oak and Walnut Great Blue Heron. 24 inches tall.
Steam-Bent Great Blue Heron Sculptures are typically built from alternating strips of White Oak and Walnut. The strips are heated using steam for 8-12 hours. When they are indivudually removed from the steam they are immediately bent into specially created molds.After the wood cools (typically overnight) they are combined into a gluing frame and laminated together. The alternating oak and walnut strips give the herons their unusual coloring.
