Crescent Stand No. 1
The Austin Heitzman crescent-like stand is an outstanding mixture of artistry and craftsmanship, technical application, execution, and innovation. Known for his astonishing, sometimes physically defying feats of woodworking, Austin Heitzman has mixed the beauty and understanding of the function of the stand with a form that elicits the impossible. This cherry burl and oxidized white oak is on another level of bonsai stand artistry and is an heirloom of the modern era. Capable of holding Austin himself on the cantilevered stand, this piece makes a perfect complement to a dramatic composition of a tree representing the quest for sunlight on the edge of a cliff or overhanging a chasm that creates the combination of negative space and the impossibility of survival on the edge of life.
