Shattered Square

View Woods & Finishes

Shattered was my first piece inspired primarily by process. I was curious to see if I could create random patterns by splitting, assembling, and juxtaposing different sizes, shapes, and grain patterns of wood, and whether human nature would compel me to create order out of such chaos. I also wanted to somehow capture the energy that goes into splitting wood by hand: that cataclysmal action of shattering wood into hundreds of pieces.

I began to experiment with this process, unsure of where my explorations would take me. One of the first pieces I created was a large square block, which felt very restless until I squared the edges. This seemed to contain its energy and ground the piece. From there, I created a grouping of four geometric pieces that only fit together in a very specific manner. This intrigued me, and by the end, I found the spaces between the groupings to be as visually compelling as the spaces between the wood.
