The Book in The Bark contains an essay in my symbolic alphabet about using the debris of woodturning to create pieces. As woodturners we are using the solid lumber but never thinking about the amazing material that surrounds it. The absence of the lumber draws the viewers attention to the space in-between which is no longer there.
