Deconstructed Eagle Panel

Availability: Only 1 available

Yellow Cedar wood

This is one of the first pieces I carved for this show. It was abstract, in the sense that the parts of the bird had been rearranged to fit the circle. The main idea was to showcase a new style of design, where I use what I call, ‘undulating formline’. Traditional design uses shapes called ovoids and u-shapes, which in themselves are complete elements. In this new style, my elements go under and over and through. My first drawing of this style came to me about 20 years ago. Only in recent years have I been able to carve it to the level I imagined it at.” – Don Yeomans
