This sculptural piece is called “Twisted”. It is made out of Spalted Ambrosia Maple, mounted on a piece of Walnut Crotch. It is topped with a wood bolt with hand cut threads and a threaded walnut "nut", although purely decorative, it implies a more mechanical assembly process.
I lathe turned each piece on multiple axis, then segmented them, glued the pieces back to back in pairs and then set them in the helix spiral. Each piece, moving up the spiral, is slightly shorter than the previous piece. I created it with a very slight forward lean to it to give it an impression of greater height. It is mounted on spectacular piece of Walnut crotch.
I have four basic goals that I strive to achieve with my work:
• Design and create pieces that complement the wood.
• Explore the concept of creating a sense of movement with an inanimate object.
• Design pieces in such a way as to visually “stretch” portions of the piece to appear either larger, smaller or a different shape that it actually is. (This applies primarily to my sculptural work and my wall hangings.)
• Be as ecologically responsible as possible with my woodwork. I use as much salvage as possible and much of my other material is grown specifically for commercial purposes.
Size is 31" wide, 18" deep, 35 1/2" tall.
This dynamic piece would look fantastic in your office, lobby or home.
