Functional Wood Works
All of these wall sculptures are made from the same cherry beam that had a crack that went the length of the beam. This was a situation where I collaborated with the natural crack in the wood. After cutting the pieces I started chiseling around the crack and let it talk to me as to what I should make. I purposely made the chiseling rough to express the nature of the wood. Also, I like using a precious metal like gold leaf within a context of the natural rough wood.
