Abstract sculpture made with a variety of hardwoods, glass and stainless steel. Displayed on a granite base.
Blue Phoenix evolved out of a single piece of wood with a beautiful grain pattern. It looked like a wing, so I cut it in half crosswise to get a mirror image pair. From there the design grew. I focused a lot on shape and pattern, and as always, I was looking for simple but complex.
This piece let me experiment a bit with laminating different colored woods to each other before being shaped. The designs or patterns that result are determined by how the piece is contoured which makes it very interesting work.
