This is my latest project, a flat cedar panel, carved entirely by sand. The low-density fiber of the wood gets eaten away instantly by sand, shot at high velocity through an air hose, while the high density fiber resists and holds its ground. This is what leaves the random, deeply grooved grain patterns, which I would never be able to carve by hand, or at least, it would take me an extraordinary amount of time and effort and it would never be as good. It's kind of like creating instant driftwood and I'm co-authoring the piece with nature. Those familiar with mid-coast Maine will probably recognize this landscape.
