Historical Context:
The natural world is a masterpiece. Existing as a product of its own design, it is already perfect and any attempt to replicate is destined for failure. My relationship with nature is a collaboration and a dialogue of inquiry and appreciation. My method for working and the materials I choose emphasize a collaborative process between nature and myself. Through working with wood the natural world is allowed an even stronger voice in the overall presence of the final object. As I shape and assemble the material, a dialogue begins to occur as different colors and patterns become a single form.
