Falling Autumn Leaves – Wood Art


Matisse Inspired Sculpture


Falling Leaves Vase is an arc shape sculptural form inspired by the Matisse leaves.  They are in many of his paintings and also the scissor cut paper collages of leaves made when he was no longer able to paint.   This piece features turning, carving and painting. This is one of several Matisse pieces. He is one of my favorite painters because his forms are simple and elegant and no one can draw a curve as clean as he did.

This item will be a great addition to any art collection.  If you collect art or are starting out  Falling Autumn Leaves Vase belongs in your collection.  Picture it as a centerpiece on a shelf. Surely it will be a conversation piece. My signature, Alan Adler is on the bottom.

This arc is perfect as a Display Piece. It throws great shadows with the proper lighting.  You may also enjoy looking at some other Matisse inspired items Matisse Inspired Dancer Vase.

Care for your Falling Autumn Leaves Vase

  • Keep out of direct sunlight
  • Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
  • Do not wash with water, if necessary use only a damp cloth
  • Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster.  I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.
