An apple appears suspended in the middle of a ring of fire. Sculpture made with maple and a mirror.
Inception began as another generation of Dawn and evolved as the work progressed. Initially I had something quite different in mind from the end result. I wanted to spend a little more time working with the idea of fire or flame carved in the maple ply. The grains and colors of the different layers create such a nice effect when carved. I liked the way an alabaster semi globe placed on the mirror looked like a globe suspended in mid air. It reminded me of a supernova or the Big Bang. I liked the sense of beginning and thought that an apple was the perfect way to say it.
