About The Work
Wood in the southwest desert doesn’t rot; it ages with the exposure to the elements. Wind sculpts the surface, sun dries and cracks the wood, and rain creates the silvered patina. This piece was turned and allowed to weather outdoors. Rusted steel wire wraps the disc form, embracing the wood and the inevitable passage of time.
