57"h x 27"w x 15"d
Many years ago, a shipment of antique Chinese furniture was destroyed in shipping, and a very disappointed lady gave me the salvaged parts. The brown panels in the Siblings Cabinet were once one piece of wood which was crushed and split when I acquired it. Other parts of the salvage have been authenticated as 18th century Huang-huali wood, which I was able to use for the handles. The door frames are made with Ramin, a golden Mahogany-like wood which was over harvested in the 80’s when I bought it, and is now considered endangered. I paired this all with American Walnut, and a veneer called Izombe which is sustainably harvested in Camaroon.
Siblings Cabinet was included in the exhibition "Artifacts" February 17–July 8, 2018 at the Oceanside Museum of Art
