A recent creation is this custom zia made from reclaimed wood.
Hand made from reclaimed wine barrel staves were acquired from a New Mexico winery located here in Albuquerque. The reclaimed lumber is treated to high-light the natural wood grain and bring out the character of this decorative piece. The turquoise stone in the center was obtained from a local stone seller.
The client wanted a decorative piece for a place in his office. After conferring with him and getting the measurements, this piece was created for that special spot. Unfortunately, it was intercepted en-route to the office and is now hanging in his house.
