This light is a part of a body of work that began with research in boat construction and became more of a formal study that utilizes earlier experience in creating boat-like forms.
The light is made out of multiple 1/16’’ maple veneer strips that are pinned on end and splayed out to create a cavity. The thin veneer allows for translucence that reveals the grain and provides an orange-like glow through the wood.
