SP2015 Material Study

Spalted Maple & Faux Fur

12” x 12” x 9”

SP2015 Material Study was created with a focus on negative space. Smith designed this piece by first envisioning what this piece would sit upon. From there he constructed an angular response, following a contour path.

Smith is interested by internal and external spaces, so he created the trough in the contour that allowed for the fur to be housed within. The relation of material was combined to experiment ways of integrating completely different materials into a cohesive work.
