English yew wood

Artist Statement: I have always tried to portray elements from the log that I work from. Whether it is a knot, insect damage or the natural cracking that happens in a piece of wood. I want the viewer to look at my work and to enjoy the true beauty of nature that I have left into the finished piece. This piece of yew had a beautiful natural waney* exterior. I wanted to leave a trace of this in my form. I feel that if you follow the natural curves and grain of the wood, then it will flow naturally into the final form.*Waney: A sharp, angled, or uneven edge on a board
