Here is one of my favorite sculptures: Roads Untaken. A mosaic of
three exotic hardwoods (yellowheart, paela, and padauk) with walnut "grout,"
it is 17 inches in diameter, and stands 21 inches on the base. Those are
the natural colors; it is just oiled, not stained. The ball just rests
on the three struts, so it can be lifted and returned in any orientation.
Let your eye meander along the light roads which run between hexagons
or the dark roads which run between triangles. Is there a yellow path from
any hexagon to any other hexagon? Is there a red path from any triangle to
any other triangle? The form can be called the exploded propellorized
For a sense of scale, the above image shows it installed at a show at
the Clayton Liberatore Gallery, in the summer of 1999. It is low, near the
floor, so people can sit around it like a meditation object. (That was my
pony tail phase, now phased out.)
