I loved the idea of arranging colorful lines randomly throughout the vessel. However, when I tried to place the legs, I couldn’t find the footing for one of them because of the figuration of this beautiful burl. While focused on creating a new design, I learned that the real challenge was to make this vessel stand up.

To solve this dilemma, I put two of the horizontal lines crossing the void and creating a new footing for the leg. The lid also echoed the design. Unexpectedly, this challenge turned out to be the motive to bring the whole project together.

Crossing the Void was part of the AAW Member Exhibition, Step Up to the Plate
