Spillane

Mesquite, Wenge and Baltic Birch
6"(h) x 12" x 16"

I carved the rim of this piece in solid mesquite, one of the few woods that grow in the desert landscape of the Southwest US and Mexico. I named this piece for my cousin, who now has it in his collection. Our grandfather, Frank Spillane immigrated to the US from Ireland.
