The popular display of driftwood sculpture is back at the Woodinville Library through the end of April. These new works of art were created by students in the Woodinville Driftwood Sculpture Class, sponsored by
Northshore Senior Center. Many of these pieces will be featured in the 49th annual Northwest Driftwood Artists Show on May 19-20 at Country Village in Bothell.
As well as sculptures, the library’s exhibit includes a number of unusual pins and pendants, all created from found wood. Whether large or small, the process is the same: Weathered wood in an interesting design is thoroughly cleaned of decay, sanded meticulously, shaped to bring out nature’s best design and finished with oil and beeswax, then burnished with an antler. Most sculptures are then mounted on a complementary base. The process is time consuming, but the lovely finished pieceseach one of a kind are rewarding indeed. A wide variety of form, wood grain, color, size, and style is found in this display.There are current openings in the Woodinville Driftwood Sculpture class which meets every Thursday morning from 9-11:30 at Greenbrier Community Center. Those interested are welcome to drop by the class at 18746144th Ave. NE to see artists at work. For further information, please call Jo Marsh, instructor, at (425)883-7141.
