AAW Sphere Project

This is my contribution to the AAW sphere exhibit. All photos are by Jerry Anthony.

The title of the piece is a quote from Lao Tzu:

"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be."

I think this quote encompasses the idea I had to make my sphere resemble an imaginary propagule of some sort.

Redwood burl, 4.5 inches diameter

The entire project, post lathe, was carved using my NSK-Z500. What a gem of a tool!
