I had the pleasure of hanging out in the workshop one day [some time ago :S]. As I walked around I felt inspired by the pieces of wood that were strewn around me. I started taking photos and then these thoughts came to mind, think of it as an ode to the unknowing wood that has no idea that soon it will be transformed into something for the world to behold:
I watched you motionless, waiting to be molded,
Chipped, shaped then carved to my liking
Usual stuff, but you seemed different
I fell for the way you coarsely caressed me
As you wondered what I’d have you be
O that you could forever rot so beautifully
But not so my love, history dictates another –
Truly you were fated for greatness

P.S. I miss my camera *BAWL*
Thumbs up on the piece….quite magnif 🙂 Those pictures capture something amazing. I tell you girl u talented….keep it up..
gracias! 🙂 Indeed they do…I’m glad I took the time to notice and that others can appreciate what I see
Ooo yes yes! I started wandering around and noticed the wood 🙂 not just you at all lol the ‘rotting wood’ is my fav! Naturally amazes me!
I figured it was Laura’s work when i saw a section of “Roots”. I always wondered if it was just me who was inspired by wood, just the imagery with the grain… is it just me? =/
