Addie Draper, Closed Vessel, 1989, tulipwood, ebony, and holly, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of George Peter Lamb and Lucy Scardino in memory of Natalie Rust Lamb, 1995.100.6
In Closed Vessel, Addie Draper incorporated small sections of ebony and ivory that stand out against the softer wood tones. The sweeping grain and the sharp lines of ebony flow around the form as it balances on a narrow base, almost like a top waiting to be spun.
