Flowing out of the desert
The wood for this piece comes from the stump of an unknown species of ornamental tree/bush that a friend gave me from his property in Clearwater, FL.
Areas of the sculpture have purple hues. This a relatively uncommon result of mineral deposits in the soil. The three arms emanate from the three branches of the original growth.
As with most of my works, this piece is an experiment. It combines design influences from both my free-standing sculptures and my wall sculptures. The natural structure of this piece lent itself to a test-bed for future two-sided wall sculptures where lines flowed from face to face.
