"Line Ascending"

In a private collection - Charles B. Rice Foundation

There are times when one's material generates an idea, when circumstances beyond one's control present themselves, when process must be reconsidered, even reinvented. When these three elements clash, as they did with this piece, one can not hesitate in pursuit of a new direction. I had been considering greater height in my work when this unturnable, but wonderful hunk of pecan burl came to me. One successful piece does not a series make, so I am now searching for more unturnable materials with which to expand the idea into a more complete body of work.
