This entry is based on the images of the various Chakras as provided to me by the client (a yoga instructor). The piece is carved from a single poplar tree, as provided by the client.
The negative spaces were first drilled to depth before being shaped. Steve, my assistant for this piece, was deaf. Very intense. I hope it has aged well; I haven’t seen it for almost twenty years.
I torched it slightly before the installation, to darken it without stain.
I am sure that the years have been kind. Good materials weather well. My guess is that the roof looks better now than it did brand new, and so with the wood.
