Theme: Driftwood & shapes in natural roots and trees

Asher Kelman

OPF Owner/Editor-in-Chief
I visited Los Cabos on the Baja Coast in Mexico and discovered a long piece of bleached driftwood with shapes reminiscent of thighs and eroticism.
I had the piece cut to obtain the curvaceous portion and fit into a suitcase for the journey home.

I will use it for it’s own worth and as a model for work in steel.

First a photograph before packing, as I had a fear that the scanner would put my smuggling, even though it doesn’t appear on any “banned list” either for export from Mexico or import to the USA!


Asher Kelman: “The Dancer”
I do look forward to comments!

My second picture, above, also appears here in discussing what art might be. Add your own forms in natural wood!
