Collection: Trophy Bass Clarinet Collection

TROPHY BASS CLARINET COLLECTION: these pieces are made from the body of a bass clarinet that shattered during a repair. The instrument had been snapped in half by an angry 8th grader. I was trying to make a new tenon to stick the two pieces together again. When I was feeding the instrument into the cutter, it got hung up on a splinter and popped wide open, rendering it useless. Fortunately, I was able to find a replacement part. Unfortunately, I had a pile of bass clarinet wood (made from the grenadilla aka mpingo or dalbergia melanoxylon tree) and for a while had a chunk missing from my pinky finger from where a spring got hung and tore out. I cut pieces of wood from the larger chunks, then cut channels to inlay Kingman turquoise and New Mexico variscite, then set them in sterling silver or copper. The beads on the necklaces are cheesewood, onyx, hematite, turquoise or dyed magnesite, silver plated copper, and copper. The end caps and clasps are made by me unless they are lobster clasps.
