Jon Sauer, Zig Zag Bottle, 1993, African blackwood and boxwood, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Fleur and Charles Bresler in honor of Kenneth R. Trapp, curator-in-charge of the Renwick Gallery (1995--2003), 2003.60.52A-D
Jon Sauer uses tightly grained hardwoods for his intricate designs. These are essential to ornamental turning because their dense texture allows for complex surface detail. Zig Zag Bottle combines the black, shimmering finish of African blackwood with the pale, creamy texture of boxwood.
