About

An organic and sensuously pleasing wood sculpture by California artist John McAbery, done in 1999.

McAbery lives on a remote beach in Northern California in his hand made house and creates fantastic wood sculptures entirely by hand, using only hand tools.

This sculpture comes with a series of photos showing the transformation of a large piece of Bay Laurel wood into a delicate and fine sculpture. And a small bi-fold with the title, Moonflower, and a brief description of the artist and his work.
