Wood, 25x7x7

In this cherry trunk I eliminated all the sapwood and carved only the warm red heartwood with geometric forms and indentations. I was interested in edges that would catch the light sharply, crisply, while flooding the indentations with gentle light gradients. Though I carved rectilinear forms, the exposed organic grain pattern was so attention getting, that it competed visually with the strict exterior forms. My title suggests this duality of external and internal energies.
