Assemblage (vavona), 2017
Vavona burr veneer, beech substrate
58 x 94 x 8cm

Employing a method normally utilised by cabinetmakers two successive cross sections have been removed from a burr. These have been reversed and adjoined on a horizontal plane so that they reflect their shared surface. A burr is a type of malignancy formed when a tree undergoes some form of stress.
