Love the new process and the results. Couple of questions if you have the time. Are the pods hollow inside? If so, why? Have you considered putting a hinge on one of these to make a box? Do you ever capture anything inside the pods?

Thanks again for all your posts. I really enjoy watching your art.

Thanks for all the comments. I appreciate them all.

Jim, the pods are hollow and have small stones placed inside the cavity. This series must be picked up and examined from all angles to be fully appreciated. The texture provides tactile, the hollow cavity provides a surprising lightness, and the stones provide an unexpected sound. This series also allows kids, yound and old, to explore and interact with art. One of the chararistics wood affords over metal, glass, and ceramics is a warm touch. I am simply trying to encourage the touch.
