Artwork Description

John Jordan uses wood found in sawmills, dumps, and construction sites and enjoys creating beautiful objects from materials that were destined to be buried or destroyed. In these vases he has dyed the box-elder wood pale yellow, vivid green, and dark gray to create the appearance of different wood types.
