This piece was driven by the wood, as most of my pieces originate. I do not work in Walnut often, but I was gifted these pieces, but they were smaller then the wood I usually work with. Pondering what to do with this, I wanted to give the pieces a human look, with a flow of what could be dresses on the bodies. Naming the piece would always be an issue, but I elected to look at my family, having three daughters, the name “Daughters” emerged.
The edges are hard, not the normally soft smooth edge I usually give my work. The shadows the piece throws adds to its personality. The base, and the Walnut, are finished in a clear polyurethane resin. These are hardwoods, and the weight of the piece can be deceptive. It gives the symbolic piece a feeling of permanence.
