In making this tray I wanted to honor the bat, especially the Little Brown Bat which is likely heading for extinction in New England within 20 years, due to the White Nose fungus. I was inspired to carve the bat in shishiai-bori, shallow relief below the surface, by beautiful Japanese works in wood and metal carved in this technique. I wished to create a design and form for the tray with no more than was necessary to convey an emotion around the bat and moth.
