Swan pop-up (I thought of things that were beautiful)

This piece is tiny – 7″ x 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.

The text reads:
I thought of things that were beautiful
because of what seemed like
evolutionary necessity
on which their survival hinged.

I wondered what other purpose these creatures served other than to mesmerize and delight us.

    So do I understand this correctly–you are cutting the elements that pop up out of the support? If that’s the case it’s creating the most wonderful juxtaposition of figure, void (the cut-out part) and shadow. Very cool!

    and thank you so much!
