This project started as a riff on another piece of wall art. I drew up the initial idea and modified it using vector software. The central idea was to have the piece milled with a CNC router. I opted to hand carve the prototype in order to investigate flaws in production.

I do not remember what prompted this piece. I worked in the sign industry for many years and always liked the large channel letters used in exterior signage. I also wanted to play with the texture of OSB, something I had not done since my early college sculptures.
