Maryland Artisan Guild

In addition to making custom furniture, Yaakov Bar Am, of Pikesville, also creates artistic work like "King of the Undersea Mountain," a Polynesian-style hour-glass vase representing an underwater volcano that he formed out of osage orange wood and embellished with a pattern using pyropgraphy or wood burning. The inside is painted red to represent lava with a surprise image of a female fire demon on the bottom of the form.
