Illusions in Wood
The idea behind this body of work was initially inspired by another wood artist who created baskets from turned wood. I was intrigued by this concept – that the viewer could be tricked into believing that it was a woven basket. I was inspired to create an entire body of work that could deceive the viewer into believing it was something that it was not. It could be ceramic, pottery, glass or metal – until they picked it up to discover the deception.
