The inspiration for this piece was drawn from two different directions.

The cant that produced the three shelf parts and the spline board was salvaged from a maple stump. Removing the useable wood in the stump produced a tapered angle piece.

It has been curing in the studio for a number of years. I always intended to use it with out wasting it into dimensioned stock. Angles on both pieces of stock happened to be 25 degrees.

The design of this piece mimics the form of the wind swept and storm ravaged trees that grow on our coastal shoreline.

The extreme character of the Maple compression wood, along with form and function make this a one of a kind piece.

The joinery of this piece appears simple, but is quite a challenge to execute with precision, due to the angles and the nature of the components.

The purpose of this piece is up for interpretation. Having no front back or sides it definitely stands alone as an art piece or sculpture. It also displays other art objects such as Art Glass or Raku in a very complimentary fashion.
