Robert Cherry

Robert Cherry is a self-taught artist from Placitas, New Mexico who has been creating these beautiful vessels for more than twenty years. Each one is made from pine that is hand carved, inside and out, taking many hours to complete.

Once hewed, they are dried by the sun. If the piece survives, it is then decorated with packed strips of turquoise streaming from a center opening traversing the latitudes and longitudes of the piece. Each masterpiece is finished with potent colors and stains to bring out the natural grain of the wood, and hand-buffed to a glossy sheen.

We currently have a broad selection available in a variety of sizes, the biggest, Arizona Sunset, being the largest one he has ever or will ever create. The ones pictured are just a sampling of those that are currently available. New vessels are arriving weekly, so be sure to check back often or contact us.
