Ode to Morph

Ode to Morph

Ode to Morph: Inspired by my wood sculpture, Morph VII, and wanting to go larger, Ode to Morph emerged. Sculpting a curl over the center in wood had been one thing. But in glass was quite another.

Morph XIV

Morph XIV

Morph XIV takes elements from my previous works and becomes a cantilevered, curl-over wood sculpture, as well as a mobius. Unbeknownst to me at the time, it would be part of my inspiration for one of my future glass sculptures, Ode to Morph.

Morph XII

Morph XII

Morph XII : One aspect of my designs that I have not discussed much is exemplified in Morph XII. Asymmetry…which I personally define as comfortable unpredictability. It allows walking around this piece, and most of my other work, and seeing different things in the journey.

Morph XI

Morph XI

Morph XI embodies my favorite sweeps and sensuous curves, but it also displays a rather dramatic and extremely stylized human form. In the process, it violates the traditional “Golden Thirds” rule. But my roguish nature likes breaking rules.

Morph X

Morph X

Morph X : I do love the outcome of the movement and tight undulations. It’s fun to allow your eyes to trace the edge-line along its one, continuous, unbroken curve.

Morph IX

Morph IX

Morph IX : The question was “How far can I push the limits, especially in Cherry?”

Morph IX | 1′-3″ h, 11″ w, 6″ d | Black Cherry | SOLD

Morph VIII

Morph VIII

Morph VIII : Everything about this piece was just plain nuts. It’s one thing to make a curl-over, but to do one that is also on a curve?

Morph VIII | 1′-4″ h, 10″ w, 6″ d | Black Cherry | SOLD

Morph VII

Morph VII

Slender, open front curl and up-swept spire makes a real statement for the size of this Black Cherry wood sculpture. I borrowed some lines from two previous sculptures in the Morph Series…but since it’s my work, I do not feel guilty of plagiarism. You decide.

Morph VII | 1’- 2” h, 7” w, 5”d | Black Cherry | Inquire.

Morph VI

Morph VI

Morph VI : The lines, movement and proportions just worked so well together. This was another difficult piece to visualize and execute. A real fun challenge.

Morph VI | 1’- 4” h, 10” w, 6” d | Black Cherry | Inquire.

Morph V

Morph V

Morph V : I purposely selected a wood whose grain and figure would not strongly distract from my intended design. That’s why I chose the wood I most love – walnut. Solid, straight-grained and unfigured.

Morph V | 10” h, 10” w, 7”d | American Black Walnut | SOLD

Morph IV

Morph IV

Morph IV : A long vertical tunnel runs the entire length of the piece. Then it splits open and curls in on itself in a decreasing radius curve.

Morph III

Morph III

Morph III : has a maturity that I hope will carry an entire series in wood, because I’m having way too much fun to stop now. I want to see where it takes me.

Morph III | 9” h, 6” diameter | American Black Walnut | SOLD

Morph II

Morph II

Experimentation and not being afraid to take risks are key to pushing the bounds. Like in my windshake walnut wood sculpture, standing horizontal or vertical, provided risky trajectory challenges to “meet in the middle.”

Morph II | Vertical: 1′-6″ h, 1′-2″ w, 9″ d | Horizontal: 1′-2″ h, 1′-6″ w, 9″ d | Inquire.

Morph

Morph

Morph : Although I’ve often said that I will take my inspiration wherever I can find it, I never expected to find it at a party in a bowl of pot-pourri.
