Dale Larson and Stephen Hatcher have collaborated twice in the last decade on threaded sphere boxes for the EOG auctions. This year they chose to make another with a favorite theme: geckos and ladybugs. Dale made the exquisite maple burl box and Stephen inlaid, painted, dyed, and lacquered it.

About Stephen Hatcher

Stephen Hatcher showed an aptitude for realistic drawing at an early age. Upon finishing high school he earned income painting murals in homes. Though art has held a lifetime interest for Stephen, several years at the University of Washington lead to degrees in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics. During his 20-year career as an electronics entrepreneur Stephen developed numerous cutting-edge devices for the wireless communications industry. Retiring from this field, Stephen turned his focus to woodturning and stone carving. Combining these techniques led to his unique style of artwork.
