Pointing to the One

Sold - Oct 6, 2012 - Collection of Bill Mitchell

This piece resulted from an open commission from Bill Mitchell to make something different from anything else I've ever done. Three prior sculptures (shown on this site) preceded this one as well as many prototypes and experiments. The main technique used I think of as "side turning", in that long turning elements are rotated like a propeller and worked on each face separately, using a strobe light assist. I've been fascinated by this technique for several years but only put it to use in a finished object in this piece and its preliminaries. The inspiration comes from my continuing interest in Mughal architecture in particular and temple/tomb architecture generally.
