Mon, Sep 26th, 2011 I love my bamboo series - and I enjoy getting inspiration from customers.
In April I met a gentleman in Texas who envisioned black bamboo along a lakeside, with the shimmering waters behind the bamboo - the waters a deep blue.
Oooh, I said. I like that, I think I'll make it. And so I did - it was my joy & inspiration to make the midnight bamboo.
And so I did.... and I made two. The murals are both 21" x 56" and highly carved. One seems like the midnight bamboo we discussed, but the other feels more like the 'A Dawn Song', with a gentle breeze moving through the groves and the quiet tock, tock of the grasses welcoming the morning splendor.
Here are some pictures.
By the way, Ben hasn't seen the bamboo murals yet, but I expect he'll see them in person next week!
