Wall Sculptures

This page includes my "Folded Wood" series and a series inspired by printing blocks. Some people assume the "Folded Wood" sculptures are formed by steam-bending; they are in fact carved and sanded to shape. I begin the process by creating a dozen or more small felt models. I select the most pleasing form, measure it and transfer the design to a block of wood which I have laminated. I proceed with chain saw, grinders, rasps, and sanders to shape it, then I spend many hours hand-sanding and finishing to get the final magical result.

The inspiration for the "printing block" series came in a round-about way. In 1981 I carved some wood blocks to make prints. The process of printing left residual inks on the blocks. I liked the look of the blocks as much as I liked the resulting prints, so I stood the blocks on edge on my desk and just enjoyed them as part of the décor for many years. In 1992 I looked at them and realized that I could use this effect to create a relief sculpture. I began experimenting and took the idea in many directions.
