Flute Works

There is something so beautiful in the forms found in musical instruments. Their beauty comes not merely from the basic function of these parts but from the years of refinement of these elements. I so love antique elements that have been worn down by the years of human touch and these keys imply that feeling. 

I have been told that the most interesting compositions are found in odd numbers and yet using two sets of keys from a flute, each having two key covers, makes these elements form the focal point of this work. Their elegant geometry stands in stark contrast to the natural form of the seashell behind them. They may have lost their physical attachment to a flute but they still make for a beautiful composition.
