Formally, the Mystery of Space series explores piercings, flowing edges with varied widths, depth/concavity, and strong outer/inner relationships.

No.2 uses yellow cedar, laminated to form the carving block. The surface is left natural and bare, and great care was taken to smooth the piece with gradually finer grit abrasive. The fine growth rings add an intriguing pattern to the surface along with the natural colourations which emerged as I carved.

Conceptually, I am influenced by quantum mechanics and relativity in establishing an abstracted view of space. When looked at through these theories metaphysical questions arise about reality.
