This month is a sneak preview of some future work that
is in the pipeline. Larger explorations in the tube form, chainsaw
These pieces are Douglas fir, and are open on each end
and hollowed throughout. The pieces will be further shaped and refined
and the final shaping stage is to tweak the rims and the way the pieces sits
to maximize the piece's character and energy. It's amazing how very
small changes in "attitude" really change the overall statement of a piece.
Some of them will be be sandcarved to reveal the
topology of the grain. This will add a great deal of surface
complexity to the pieces, and my intent will become more clear as to the
energies of the bends and distortions in the forms.
