By placing the grain diagonally through the form, the body of the piece elongates slightly during the drying process. This provides a truly sculptural element, as the completed object presents itself differently from every direction. The wholesomeness of the form is enhanced by the circumvention of the black zone lines wrap themselves around the form in a rhythmic, dynamic flow.
