spotted elegance,

this animal has a structural gesture that marries an outer surface of patterned irregularities to perfection. This piece captures the sophistication of the giraffe using line, plane and volume elements in a harmonic and contrasting relationship. Prior to making the final piece, a variety of sketch models were produced to abstract the animal and highlight its most distinctive characteristics: spotted body transitioned perpendicularly to a  long thin neck. The final piece was constructed in Mahogany and White Birch wood.
