Fishing bear and raven in an Appalachian rhododendron thicket. Engraved steel with heat tints. Maple.

I made two versions of this relief. The design and the first copy were made on a deadline for a commission at Linville Ridge in North Carolina. It came together quite spontaneously. This photo is of the second one which I made for the owner of a lumber mill in Butler, TN.

The design was drawn with some beautiful maple burl slabs in mind. The steel was cut with a plasma cutter and the edges flame finished for a natural melted edge. Then each piece was colored with oxidation colors or heat tints. The black on the bear and raven is a burned oil patina. The waterfall at the bottom is hammered into an S-curve that flows down over the wall or base.
