Light as Air


The corkscrew hazel tree (corylus avellana “contorta”), with its bent and twisted branches, is the inspiration for this piece. Having long been intrigued by this tree’s uniquely contorted branches I wanted to create something that reflects the whimsical side of nature, without necessarily representing this particular tree. This piece contrasts with most of my other work, which often celebrates nature’s majestic, formally impeccable qualities. But nature is multidimensional, with an infinite capacity to surprise and delight; nature is a living, boundless miracle-an idea at the heart of all my work.
