The Mystery of Motion

SOFA Chicago 2008

Five of my sculptures were presented at SOFA Chicago 2008 by del Mano Gallery

This is the third consecutive year Jan Peters and Ray Leier invited me to exhibit my wood art with them.  It was as exciting this year as the first!

My fifth piece was Infinity Rising, the twisted Redwood sculpture on far left.  Since I introduced this piece this year at SOFA, I thought you’d like to see its transition (below) from “work in progress” to the end result. For a closer look and more about the creating process, click here.

Huge Redwood Burl, nothing more than a block of wood, from which Harry Pollitt created his finished sculpture, Infinity Rising.  The wood block gives no hint of containing such gorgeous figure and grain.

Finished redwood burl sculpture, entitled Infinity Rising, by Harry Pollitt.  Sweeping curves, large amounts of negative space and a lustrous finish are the key features of this piece.
