Thorax, Hand-Carved and Bleached Maple

Estimated Production Time7-8 weeks

About

Drawing from the soft curves and cage-like geometry found in the bone structure of human chest cavities, this ghostly piece was hand-carved from maple and bleached to a pure white by Sam and Lydia of Laylo Studio in Chicago, IL. Visible joinery used to construct the central hexagonal ring elicits a narrative depicting how parts of the whole are assembled. From this centre ring, shaped spindles draw themselves outwards from the centre and gradually taper to delicately rounded points. Can be made in various sizes and finishes with optional integrated hanging or mounting systems for installation on ceilings, walls, or floating in space.

Additional Options

Black Walnut (natural/oxidized/ebonized) Maple (natural/bleached/oxidized/oil washed) Oak (natural/bleached/oxidized/ebonized) Ash (natural/bleached/oil washed/ebonized) Cherry (natural)
