Bud Latven, Spheres, 1989, Macassar ebony, birch veneers, sterling silver, and dye, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of George Peter Lamb and Lucy Scardino in memory of Natalie Rust Lamb, 1995.100.21, © 1989, Bud Latven
Bud Latven has placed two tiny spheres on the polished surface of this piece. The vessel balances precariously on its narrow base, and the silver balls appear on the verge of escaping. Latven laminated sections of grain together to form a geometric pattern around the opening that emphasizes the deep tones of Macassar ebony.
