comments:    This work, that I call "Coiled Form, I", was carved from a fabricated block of mahogany. The shape is the outcome of my fascination with evolving, smooth, three-dimensional curves. The result suggests a freefloating organic form, yet it cannot escape from the trigonal inorganic geometry that constrains it in two of the three dimensions. Most of the work was done in 2002 during a two-week summer stay at Anderson Art Ranch in Snowmass, Colorado where I was privileged to study with woodcarver Kurt Nielsen.
