Organic Sculpture Turned Mesquite Table Lamp by Chris Eggers

About

Beautiful turned wood lamp by Chris Eggers. Lamp is signed and dated 1986. Artist statement: I primarily use tree stumps for my illuminated sculptures. Stumps are the heart of the tree, twisting in several directions with holes and knots. The heart and sapwood are mixed following the roots and trunks in their growth. Stumps are part of the tree that few have a use for which makes them readily available and overlooked "Diamonds in the rough". Traditional turning instruction warns against using wood with imperfections because of the risks of harm or failure. I use tools and processes not normally associated with wood turning to overcome these challenges. There are other areas of a tree that are also desirable for my style of turning. The union where two or more branches or trunks join is called a crotch. This area, when turned perpendicular to the trees growth, offers beautifully grain patterns and usually a single void. Damaged areas of a tree also provide unique turnings. The effort of harmonizing the woods imperfections with a complimenting shape creates a sui generis piece. The contrast between the finished piece and the natural imperfections reflect the desert's contrast between its severe environment and the allure of the wild flowers in spring.
