I am interested in the complete form of each piece of work and how that form relates to the characteristics of the wood. How the inside relates to the outside and how it relates to the base. Does the piece lift from the surface? Does it move my attention from one spot to another, so that I see the entire object, rather than getting stuck in one spot?
And sometimes, as in my unique pieces, I am just looking for a new avenue, or responding to a specific prompt— size, use, or other criteria.
