Less is Autumn

Updated: Nov 10, 2018


12 February 2014 This piece is tentatively called Autumn. Here it is on the floor of my workshop and it is only loosely fitted together at this point. I have learned, before I actually put these together: that I have engineered how these pieces will stay together; that all of the parts fit; and to make sure the direction I have set out on, aesthetically, is still true.


Only weeks ago this piece was twice the size with twice as many components as you see here. At first I was rather pleased with the new direction and complexity. I was intrigued with the unusual configuration but as the days turned into weeks, it just wasn't right. I kept pulling elements off a little at a time. It is so difficult to see a work freshly, not unlike looking into your own heart. Can you see clearly where you are going or are you merely proceeding in a direction because that is the way you have been going?
