Flight – Apple Wood 14″ tall by 6″

Brancusi’ set the art world on its ear in 1923 with a sculpture he called “Bird in Space”. He concentrated not on the physical attributes of the bird, but instead on its movement. The bird’s wings and feathers are eliminated, the swell of the body is elongated, and the head and beak are reduced to a slanted oval plane.
It was with this idea in mind that I thought explore the essence of flight. Arriving at my design from a study of Origami birds, I squared off wing edges, and eliminated any definition of feathers, allowing the wood grain to lead the viewer through the motion of flight.
