Spalted Triptych Box
This box features three bookmatched panels of spalted maple endgrain framed in wenge set in a ziricote case. Ziricote is a highly prized Mexican hardwood that exhibits unique wild, fantasy landscape-like figure. The panels are three successive bookmatches off a laminated block, tracing the changing pattern produced by the spalting fungus as it moves through the wood. Ziricote has become nearly unobtainable, so these are very special boxes.
