This sculpture is the eleventh in a series of abstract sculptures. I incorporated hand dyed cotton string as a drawing tool. It offers a thin fuzzy foil to the fat solid wood forms.
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.
