The book of water
The design for this piece was inspired by elemental erosion found in nature. Soft edges, smooth surfaces that look as though they were worn down through decades of exposure to a body of water.
This is the first piece in a sculptural series drawing inspiration from Musashi Miyamoto's the book of five rings. Just like each book pertains to a different element of nature, so does each sculpture.
This sculptural piece of furniture, hand carved from a solid Ash log and hand sanded. Stained by using an organic solution consisting of steel wool and vinegar then finished with an oil product.
