This piece is the break from the restriction of the purer process of simply displaying the natural colour, shape and texture of wood. This represents the start of playing with paint.
Two simple circles are split to mirror one another with a centre of brass above encouraging a centre of spalted maple below. The background is a series of horizontal coloured stripes representing deep space at the very top, through the colours of the atmosphere to the surface of the earth, then dirt, water, rock and finally, the molten mantle at the bottom.
