Green Birch Laminate
Please click on the images for a more detailed view.
This is a single plank of dyed and laminated birch wood, cut in two pieces and sculpted to match. The two pieces stand separately without touching. A silk cloth can be dragged between the forms. The grooves are a double-helix, winding like a candy cane from top to bottom. They represent two opposing and independent forms whose beauty is multiplied when matched together. Think of marriage. The base is solid steel painted black. The steel legs are eight inches long, bent cherry red hot and are inserted deeply into the base and wood, fastened beneath.
23 tall, wood is 2.5" thick, base is 5" diameter
