This is a beautiful wood from Morocco. This piece is 4" by 5" by 6".
This is one of several pieces I have in masur birch, a fascinatingly-figured wood from Scandinavia. This particular piece is 4" x 5" x 6.5"; I have other pieces im masur birch that are a little larger.
This is a beautiful specimen of amboyna. This piece is 4.5" x 5.5" by 6.5". Not all of my amboyna pieces have this striking light-colored bit of sapwood, but they are all full of curls and swirls in the grain. I do have (at the moment) an exceptional amboyna piece in the form of the blue-patinaed bronze triple.
This is a mobius. The model I worked from is a strip of paper that was given three half twists before it was connected. Thus it is equivalent to the blue-patinaed triple shown elsewhere among these sample pieces. This actually is closer to the form that a strip of paper actually would take. This piece is not available, but a bronze casting of it will be available before the end of 2006. It is 7" x 7" by 14".
This bronze is called Enneper's curve (because Alfred Enneper described it), or The Baseball Curve (because the edge is the shape of the seam on a baseball). This piece is about 7" by 7" by 9". The patina is a natural-bronze effect, with a paste-wax final coat. Any of the patinas is available on any of the pieces. This piece is available with a black granite base.
This bronze mobius is 4" by 5" by 6". The patina does bear quite a resemblance to a light colored granite. This piece is also available in any of the other patinas seen on this site. Like most of my pieces, it's cast from a sculpture I carved in wood. A granite base is available if you're interested.
It may be difficult to visualize how these two images can be two views of a single piece. Technically, it is a mobius, like the small light-colored bronze, because it has just one edge and just one surface. Here's the difference: to create this form with a strip of paper, one would have to give the paper three half twists, instead of one, as with the more familiar mobius. One of my wood pieces in this form was purchased by the Yale Art Gallery for their permanent collection. Like most of my pieces, it's cast from a sculpture I carved in wood. This piece is 8" by 8" by 4". It's available with a black granite base.
Yes, this really is another view of the same piece shown in Triple Mobius, view 1. Like the other bronzes, this is available in any of the patinas shown here. It may not be clear in these images, but this patina has a slightly more blue-green cast than the bluer Hand and Cyclide.
Look at both views to get a sense of the shape of the piece. This is quite a striking bronze patina; this piece is also available in any of the other bronze patinas you see on this site. This piece is 7" by 7" by 11". This piece is available with a black granite base.
Blue Cyclide, second view
No, this isn't a mathematical form, like most of my pieces. I sculpted it as a hand, but to me it also suggests a crown. It rests comfortably enough on its fingertips as well. Interestingly, the original casting developed a superficial crack in the web between the forefinger and the middle finger: I have a scar there on my own hand. This piece is available with a black granite base.
