When I’m gone projects from this period of my life will be referred to as my “barbecue stick phase” – which continues here with “Columns” – a box idea that popped into my head one day as I was looking, somewhat tearfully, through my pictures of Palmyra after its recent destruction at the hands of… – OK, we won’t go there.
It started, of course, with the idea of the columns (for those interested in the minutiae of things, there are 37 sticks per column), and then, as usual, things came to a grinding halt for a while.
I toyed with this idea…
but backed off, eventually settling for what you see before you.
Along the way it looked like this (nothing glued at this point – no slots for the sticks even)...
For the columns to end up vertically, a fair amount of precision was required – not something I’m known for, but it worked out OK in the end…
Bookmatched jatobá, fumed oak and barbecue sticks.
Full size (the box is, as you can see, somewhat smaller) – 310mm long, 170mm wide, 160mm high.
