Chakra Carved Wall Hanging. Whether for your home studio, yoga studio, office decor or as an inspirational gift for a dear friend, the chakra elements wall hanging will bring a sense of balance and intent to any space.The chakras are carved down into the wood and framed with a floral frame. This can be made to be a wall hanging for your meditation space and studio or add a steel rod tier for a yoga mat holder. There is also the option to add a 3″ deep shelf to the top for your personal items.Chakra Holder Measurements: 24″ L 12″W 1″D (7″ w/ tier for mat)This product is made after order is placed. I use an all natural, water-based clear coat finish on all of my products to seal in in the healthiest of ways. I do not use stains. The darkening of the wood comes from applying the shou sugi ban technique. All other colors used are from a hand mixed water based paint. This allows not only for my workshop space to stay healthy, clean and safe to breathe in but also for your home and studio environment as well.Silver steel rods are used for each tier to hold even the heavier yoga mats, as well as for busier studio environments. Rod holes are reinforced with deep pocketed steel for ease of sliding rods into position. Every yoga mat holder is one of a kind due to the nature of each board having its own individual grain patterning, knotting and sap levels for absorption. Each item is handcrafted individually at the time of ordering.The Shou Sugi Ban (Yakisugi) technique is an ancient Japanese fire burning technique used to traditionally preserve wood by charring it with fire. I use this application on all of my items. It is an important part of my designs and my process of using all 4 elements in the making of my pieces. I switch between a dark charred to a light shou sugi ban burn in varying degrees to accentuate the wood grains while giving a warm feel of natural earthen element.COLOR WASH CHOICES: Colors vary slightly on each board due to wood grains, amount of sap in wood and how much color the wood will absorb while still allowing grains and knots in each board to show through. Worn Turquoise – Turquoise tones all over the wood grains and worn away to show the natural wood tones beneath.(Pictured 1st and several other times without shelf or holders.)Worn mossy greens – Deep green tones of a forest worn away in areas to show wood tones beneath. (Pictured above with shelf and yoga mat tier.)White Wash – White color wash covering the front.Violet Sky – A turquoise peaking through a violet rich wash and warm in spots to small areas of natural wood tones.All Over Burn, (Shou Sugi Ban) – An ancient Japanese fire burning technique. Blackening of the wood with the open flame giving texture and character. Natural – Natural wood tones with no color added. Using the light burning application to accentuate the wood grains.*All 5 elements are intentionally used in the making of all my products. Earth – (wood, metal)Fire – (sou sugi ban application)Air – (high air flow room for drying process)Water – (water to make color washes and cool the wood while putting out any deeper burns)Ether/Spirit – (the inspiration of the subject matter and use of each product)7 Chakras are carved down into the wood itself. Two pre-cut keyholes on the back side for easy hanging. Optional 3- 1/2″ shelf on top.Wall screws not included.GIVING BACK:A portion from each sale is donated to a monthly charity chosen each month. It's always been important to try to keep a balance in all things, including when making money. Portions are always given back to help out where there's a need in the world. I also have started a KIVA group to help out with micro loans on the side of the monthly charity donations. Over the past few years we have helped in areas of challenging agriculture needs, educational support, repairing eye sight, surgeries that save a life, feeding in times of crisis, birthing kits to refugees, dental clinics on reservations here and clinics abroad, newborn baby kits for refugees, surgeries for abused dogs, emergency medical supplies and so many more causes. Every little bit does help…it's an inspiring and motivational aspect that I like to look forward to.
