These are pieces that I currently possess and can ship as soon as they are purchased through the website. All of our pieces are finished inside and out with 6-8 coats of a 2 part, marine-grade, epoxy resin and are completely sealed from the environment. These pieces will not experience any dimensional changes due to humidity fluctuations, etc. and they will not split or crack any at all. Each piece is numbered, signed by myself, representing 2 “Ruels” (my son and I’s” collaboration on each and every piece, as well as the year it was completed and the species of the wood. If you are local to the North Georgia area, you are welcome to visit me at my home studio/shop in Acworth, GA so that you can see, touch and possibly take home one or more of these beautiful forms. For others who want to see them in person, stay tuned for showings at Art festivals that may be local to you. Please feel free to contact me through the website if you have any questions about these pieces or if you are interested in commissioning a form from a part of a tree that has special significance to you.
