Feeling the sun on both sides
This is my first departure from the Confluence series.
More negative space than positive
I was experimenting, working with making the negative space greater than the positive. It was also my first venture into a two-sided work, as shown here. It could be ideal for use in a pass-through space, in a window, or in a “divider” type environment.
Goncola Alves was and still is a tropical rain forest wood. But, like most of the coveted and beautiful Central and South American hard woods, it is now being grown on plantations. That makes the wood available without damage to a precious natural resource. The wood for this piece is plantation grown.
