Acclaimed wood turner Douglas Fisher releases new University of Utah wood sculpture in time for Christmas gift giving. The sculpture is turned and carved from big leaf maple and stained to accurately reflect University of Utah colors.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) December 12, 2012
This new sculpture was initially commissioned by an fine art gallery in Bellingham, Washington, for a University of Utah super fan. The University of Utah wall sculpture is hand-carved by acclaimed wood turner Douglas Fisher (http://www.douglasjfisher.com/) of British Columbia. BlueCranberry has acquired the exclusive rights and official license to market these beautiful sculptures from the gallery and is working with the artist to complete the limited edition.
Each sculpture is turned from a single round slice of Canadian Big Leaf Maple. Doug Fisher utilizes a special technique while turning the sculpture that produces a unique pattern of offset concentric circles. Mr. Fisher then hand carves the raised Ute insignia into the center of the sculpture against a textured backdrop. The wood is then hand dyed with archival grade stains and dyes. The staining process ensures an accurate color match and long-lasting color richness and depth.
“The hand carving and workmanship of each limited edition sculpture means that each piece is truly one of a kind.” commented Kenneth Packer, University of Utah alumnus and principal at Fortis Capital Advisors.
Occasionally, the BlueCranberry team discovers a deal like the University of Utah sculpture. These items are offered at a substantial discount below retail. BlueCranberry will carry this sculpture until the edition of seventy-five is complete.
“A lot of work went into the original sourcing of the Hawthorne & Wren gift line,” said BlueCranberry Founder David McInnis. “We are excited to be able to offer them for sale at BlueCranberry.”
