ILLUMINATED SCULPTURE
Split Grain illuminated sculptures use light to reveal the elemental form and physical character of reclaimed wood.  Flowing out from the center, between each suspended slice, light traces intricate details and hidden beauty found in the contours of the wood.  Capturing beautiful patterns from all angles, these reductive and simplistic sculptures reveal nature through minimal form.

THIS PIECE
Made from a reclaimed California Coastal Monterey Cypress tree trunk (see below for details about this wood) it is a dramatic floor piece mounted atop a handmade, slender steel base.  This piece's contours are accentuated with 4 sources of LED lighting within. The overall depth and shape is roughly triangluar, making a statement of nature's beauty from the pointed front along to each side.  On the right side it features a hole stabbed through the center of the piece that a branch once occupied creating a fascinating feature from the lighting within.  This piece features a dimming control to create the perfect ambience for any room setting, a felt base for scratch-free surface and is connected via a 6 foot woven black cloth cord, foot switch and 2 prong plug. 115v AC (also compatible with international voltages)

RECLAIMED WOOD
The wood for this piece is from a reclaimed California Coastal Monterey Cypress tree from hedgerows at The Sea Ranch, California. These hedgerows are rows of Cypress trees planted on the California coast starting in the early 1900’s as wind breaks.  Lawrence Halperin, landscape architect of the 1960’s Sea Ranch development, continued planting them as shelter for homes in this unique coastal development.  Cypress is a beautiful semi-hard wood that features many twists and dynamic growth patterns from the relentless force of wind along the ocean.  These hedgerows have a limited lifespan, often failing in coastal storms as they age.  This piece was created with reclaimed wood from a tree that was damaged in such a storm and felled due to its end of life cycle.

MAKING THESE SCULPTURES
This is a one-of-a-kind handmade work of art made from an specific piece of reclaimed wood. The piece is custom fit with one or many warm LED lights depending on the size an integrated aluminum piece as a heat sink also acts as an architectural feature. Great care is taken throughout the entire process resulting in a piece of refined art still retaining a handmade quality and organic beauty.
