Rebirth Maple Leaf Cross Design
This is a new piece that I made for Indian Market in Santa Fe 2011. This spring I stared at the new growth on the maples and found a four directional balance to the generation of new leaves. The stamp was the most intense part of making this piece. It was fitting that the chunk of wood that I found for carving was a piece of birds-eye maple. I really enjoy making stamps that have crazy edges as they always make interesting negative spaces.
