The sphere is a highly familiar, universal shape that is steeped in symbology. It is a geometric object whose points are all equal distance from the centre, a shape with no formal hierarchy. The sphere is the earth, the moon, a bouncing ball. It is a form that inspires curiosity and drives discovery. A sphere encourages playfulness and touch, but at the same time soothes as it transmits feelings of balance and stability. With our solid sphere, each growth stage of the tree is visible and displayed with equal weight; there is no distinct boundary between beginning and end.
It represents the process of transformation, urging us to consider the previous form of the wood and what it has now become. By encompassing each stage, or season, of the tree in each piece, the solid sphere pays tribute to the entire story of a tree. It displays the beauty found in growth and transformation.
