Alice’s Curio is an exploration that Matthew took into the whimsical world of Alice In Wonderland. The padauk door opens to reveal a landscape painted on a concave wall depicting a myriad of wildlife. The Pamele Sapele veneered body is accented with maple escutheons and rosewood banding. The upper and lower deck is made with teak parquet flooring. Ebonized columns help create an architectural feel while the maple balcony “pops” in contrast.
This piece is one of many that Woodleaf Studios has donated to fundraisers over the years. Alice’s Curio was built for the Visual Art Exchange where it was auctioned at their annual fundraiser. The money raised was used to help support up and coming artists.
