Stump II, 2018

The design intention of the Stump II was to create an organic form using inorganic components. These inorganic components are the flat, two-dimensional pieces of plywood. These pieces interlock and combine in a puzzle like fashion, building a three-dimensional skeleton. This skeleton is visually likened to a familiar and naturally organic shape, the tree stump.
