Mesquite with oil finish. Red acrylic and 24k gold leaf. Turning 30 exhibit at the 30th anniversary AAW symposium, Atlanta, GA. Analytically, lines convey information, but aesthetically they can also imply meaning and emotion. On “...and One to Grow On!” they are meant to convey both. Superimposed on a vessel—a ubiquitous but significant artifact of the woodturning movement, there are 30 lines, each representing an annual “timeline” of the AAW’s existence. Each conveys the persistent and varied challenges that occur in an organization of our size and complexity. The lines are carved onto a cellular structural base, supporting the organization comprised of a diverse membership. The 31st line, like the traditional extra "to-grow-on" birthday cake candle, is colored red and gilt, the traditional colors of luck and success.
