LIVE EDGE WOOD:
The natural edges, wavy grain lines, quilting, unique colors, knots and bark inclusions are the characteristics that define live edge wood. Each wood slab has specific feature and will vary from log to log milled. The pictures shown on this page is evident of the varying difference in grain patterns and characteristics of the wood. This is what makes live edge wood so distinctive and special. Please contact garie@gccreativeworks.com for custom order and availability information.
MATERIAL:
Arizona grown desert hardwood is uniquely hand-crafted and custom designed from weathered-down trees found in the suburban metropolitan Phoenix area. By acquiring these logs, it allows me to create 100% sustainable, repurposed live edge wood designs. Both sides of the slab goes to a router sled table to obtain desired flat surface and thickness. As the wood slab ages, noticeable cracks on the wood may appear due to its natural dry cracking process and changes in humidity and temperature. Any voids or cracks from the wood are sealed with epoxy to maintain integrity of the wood.
OIL FINISH:
Hand rubbed clear satin gel polyurethane finished. It brings out the natural beauty of wooden surfaces; durable coating for use on wood surfaces and contains ultraviolet absorbers for advanced sun protection.
WINE BOTTLE:
Upcycled glass to create a unique wine bottle art candle holder design. The bottle is cut on an angle called the TRANQUIL CUT midway between the neck and body. Wet belt sander is used to remove outer sharp glass edges. Diamond smoothing cone is used on the inside lips of open ended glass vessels.  Flame polished finished on all glass cut areas.
*Note that upcycled wine bottle may have slight irregularities and imperfections within the origin of the glass. Oil lamp not included with purchase.
FRACTAL ART:
A process of applying 20,000 volts of electricity to  the wood surface recreating a lightning strike in slow motion as well as unique abstract figures, tree and vein like shapes.
EPOXY INLAY:
Any voids or cracks from the wood are sealed with epoxy to maintain the integrity of the wood. Epoxy inlay with clear or color pigment is also use to seal the burns created during fractal art process on the surface of the wood.
EPOXY COLOR:
