Cool concept Jordan and I think the definitions were wide open as far as the concept of yin and yang go. You actually have more than one yin yang effect here as the ball and glove are also opposites. The glove is a female element while the ball is male. If you chose a bat and ball, you would have two male components as the motion of both try to exert a dominant will over the other. So, your subconscious was really on the ball! (excuse the pun :)

fantastic.
And as to interpretation that is why the Awards asks for people to describe their interpretation with the project.
The creative interpretation is part of whole thing, from my perspective anyway..

and now for that glove—I own one that looks just like it!!
Emerging from the spirit of wood comes the spirit of teamwork. Love it.

Jordan,
Spectacularific….I’m sure that is not a word but what the hey.
Did you happen to get a shot looking down into the glove?
Your talent is second to none.

Wow…so totally lifelike! I couldn’t believe it was carved out of wood…..How do you get the leather tan look and even the wear wrinkles…that is some amazing detail….is that basswood? Do you hand carve all of it or use some power carving?
