Poemlight

This piece is a visual love poem. The two pieces of veneer are shaped directly by the forces of tension and compression acting upon them – the mutual attraction pulling them together while other forces are keeping them from ever fully touching. Their love is thus held in suspension, never resolved and yet forming a whole. The light at the center is symbolic of the love connecting the two pieces. Beyond simply a lamp shade this piece is a sculpture expressing ideas in the medium of wood. (draft)
