About This Project

Inner Beauty

Size: 17″ X 14″

Material: driftwood, bronze, stainless steel, mahogany

Method: hammered, welded, carved, forged

Rather than emerging from a pupa, Inner Beauty had its humble beginnings in a small, easy-to-overlook piece of driftwood (but then the wood was cut in half). Suddenly visible was a stunning pattern as well as a dark spot resembling the eye spots on the wings of some moths. This moth’s wings are carved, and the body is welded bronze and stainless steel. The branch is made of steel, and the base is mahogany.
