climb up my apple tree

After my relational aesthetics kick, I got back to making.
This is a ring project. I got caught up with wood and couldn't let go.
The idea was a series that gets progressively.....

bigger and chunkier.

I couldn't bring myself to paint the kauri, it just seemed wrong.
I found that I was very fond of the pine because it is so soft against the skin.
It is cheap and lacked the preciousness of kauri or ebony,
it was the perfect licence to play.

I have the feeling this is only the beginning....
