This sculpture is the ninth in a series of abstract sculptures. I made HooDoo9 at the same time as HooDoo7 and HooDoo8. They all utilize a pair of offcuts that result from the creation of hall table legs like those on the Mingei Hall Table.
HooDoos are named after the eroded stone shapes of the same name, found in Colorado and Utah, among other places outside of the US. Like the wall pieces I make, these are made from offcuts and scraps leftover from other projects. These little sculptures are playgrounds for toying with color, texture, and mixed materials. I have to say, Hoo Doos are ridiculously fun to make.
