Here's another new one-of-a-kind brooch.
It feels very Richard Serra or Robert Smithson: something about its curves feel "large scale" though it's only about 4" across.
Sometimes the bent wood, processed but still very much "of" the earth, takes on the quality of a sweeping landscape--the kind you could spend a whole day walking across.
I'm not sure exactly why that is. However, as Smithson himself wrote: "Establish enigmas, not explanations."
Personally, I like both.
Just like a landscape, the curves seem to shift as you change your vantage.
