The cattail family Typaceae, of a tall reedy marsh plant with brown furry fruiting spikes. Also with long flat leaves used especially for making mats and chair seats.
Carved on Florida Cypress wood after a burnt (charring) effect known as Shou Sugi Ban. As the carving goes through the char, it reveals a beautiful combination of burnt sienna and umber colors. Very textured. This piece measures approximately 18"x24" and weighs approximately 9 lbs. Would look great in either a modern or vintage environment.
