My Dharma Series is a meditation series – chop wood, sand wood, glue wood.
Dharma is an Eastern Indian term that refers to the order that makes life and the universe possible. My Dharma is my art and the processes that I go through to make it possible.
I wanted to use an alternating concentric and radius system to engineer a strong and beautiful structure reminding me to attend to my deepest intention supporting my creative process.
This archetypal circle represents universal self-assembly as such I used the concentric and radius system and alternated each layer– four layers in all are made from of 1/8” pine wood – I stained the natural pattern that was assembled during construction of the wheel - over 2,000 pieces were used.
These structures can be suspended or be altered to hang on the wall. I light coat of linseed oil should be applied every year to keep it strong.
