Primordial Pattern Pot
Coast redwood burl
Turned, carved
3.25” x 4.5”

Theme Statement
“Coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) is the last surviving species of an ancient lineage of plants. The trees can live more than 1,000 years, and an old-growth forest grove of these majestic giants is one Earth's special places for renewing the soul. There are two primordial patterns represented on this pot. The first is the spiral and the second is the concentric geometric form. Spirals are found all through nature, and have been used in cultures throughout history to depict the divine or the cycle of life. Concentric geometric forms are also prevalent in ancient artifacts, decorating rocks as petroglyphs, or as carvings in prehistoric buildings. The interpretations of these symbols depend on the cultural context, but most convey a sense of the mysterious unknown and the divine.”

About Andi Wolfe
As at home in the lab and field as she is in her workshop, wood artist and botanist Andi Wolfe’s artwork draws inspiration from the natural world. “My botanical training has served me well in my woodturning endeavors,” says Wolfe. “Experimentation is part of my design process. I view wood as a medium for exploration and not just a material that has a pretty grain pattern. I use woods that are fine grained with subtle figuring so that my botanical designs become part of the whole vessel, complementary to the wood as opposed to a distraction to the eye. My goal is to enhance the surface so that the vessel becomes a three dimensional canvas that entices the viewer to explore all aspects of the piece.”
Andi Wolfe’s work has been exhibited in galleries and juried and invitational exhibitions, and is held in many private collections.
