Constructions

These are indoor sculptures with a basic structure made from natural wood collected from the Potomac River.  Other materials are employed to reinforce joints and add structural integrity.  Primitive techniques and materials often used by native cultures are incorporated in a process that re-purposes or recycles a variety of materials.
