While most of my time is spent designing and making sculptural furniture and other practical things, once in a while I'll just do a quick sketch and then make a sculpture of that sketch. It's a fun little break, but also serves the purpose of helping me get ideas for future projects. When I did this most recently, I was really happy with the result. The sculpture consists of a laminated poplar arch balanced atop two prongs coming off of a plywood base. The arch is held in place only by the tension provided by the steel cables that run between it and the base. Admittedly, the plywood base isn't that attractive, but the contours created by the cables are, I think, incredible, and I'm looking for a way to implement some version of this design in the future. I'm not totally sure what I could use it for yet, the the image of a massive, awesome swing set keeps popping into my mind.
