BILBAO (Tree Shelf)

2013 Platano oriental wood, Jequitiba wood, and stainless steel. H:96 x W:120 x D:14-1/2 in  (H:243,8 x 304,8 x 36cm)  Bilbao receives its name from the street in Santiago where the artist found a branch that had broken off a fallen tree. The branch was taken to the workshop and twisted, turned, and readapted so it could hug a flat wall and live a new life as a shelf. The shelf is part of the tree series, which attempts to let the natural forms found in nature dictate the majority of design.
