About The Work
A follow on piece from "Irish Water". This piece is a reciprocal structure consisting of three identically turned components. Each component was turned over three axes from wet oak before being carved and sandblasted once dry. the pieces were held together with the bright mild steel bolts during seasoning to allow controlled movement and distortion. This piece won the woodturning category of the RDS (Royal Dublin Society) National Crafts Awards in 2015.

Brosi's work is typified by simple, reduced forms, turned over multiple axis' from wet wood. After turning, the pieces are left to distort as they dry before being sandblasted to reveal the grain. Brosi works in distinct sculptural series, each communicating a concept or expressing an idea. Some series use carving, texturing, and metals, to achieve this end. He is driven by a desire to expose the honesty and imperfection in the material, often bleaching or ebonizing the sandblasted wood so that all the viewer is left with are form and texture.
