Thank you for the compliments.
This is my contribution to the Fluidity contest, for which the criteria is – “Like grasses swaying in a summer breeze, the fluid motion is visible in the solid form of the wood.”
With this work I’d like to substitute the word “lady” for “grasses”. I can visualise a vibrant young lady swaying in a summer breeze, an enchanting fluid motion.
The motion comes from both the shape of the bandsawn box and the wonderful movement of the grain, a gift of nature.
