Turned on a woodworking lathe using hand-held gouges and hollowed out through a small opening, ‘Rising Rhythm 1’ is a carving in suspension, a pulsing pattern suspended above a void.

The piece is carved on the lap using a spinning metal burr in a hand-held tool holder meaning a random, rhythmic pattern can be achieved over many hours by using the carving tool like a pencil. The carving gradually exposes peaks which are then rounded over and carved into to produce a void mirroring the central void.
