Butternut
30x12x16"
2007-08


Butternut has a grain reminiscent of walnut but is lighter and softer. I like to exhibit the beauty of the grain, which increases in linear rhythms when carving concave and convex shapes. Chisel marks trap the light while polished surfaces reflect the light. The two shapes can be interpreted as male and female forms, extravert and introvert characters. They can be arranged in different positions, each time giving the negative space positive affirmation.
