Rough Sawn Fir
This sculpture is inspired by traditional Japanese joinery post and beam construction techniques, hand carved and finished from a 12 foot long piece of rough sawn timber. It includes two cast bronze pins, shaped to highlight the natural grain of the wood. The apparently simple freestanding composition is perfectly balanced so as require no additional anchoring. The sculpture can be seen in Architectural Digest, May 2003 edition.
