The finished Elm 5 Elements!
I carved two different textures on this piece and highlighted the difference with an aniline dye. With the addition of the dyed element I chose to not put any staples into this piece, less can be more. The piece finished at about 34" across by 39" tall and 4" deep. It looks great from both sides and is of large enough scale that it can be used as an aid to room dividing or on a knee wall or sofa table. Hope you enjoyed this journey as much as I did.
