 The unknown wood is from the urban forest of greater Phoenix, Arizona
and its suburbs, and is indicative of the many exotic species that have been
introduced into the urban landscape as attractive ornamental specimens.
This piece is representative of the body of work where the wood is pierced
through, forming delicate ribbons from top to bottom, in this case
enhanced by the interplay of heartwood and sapwood.
