Holly Shell by Alison Croney Moses

Object  /  Abstract   Organic
Created using a combination of woodworking techniques, this work takes the form of a large shell, the shape of which is a subtle nod to the female form. Coopering, an ancient technique used for making barrels, has been used to join bent laminated wood that is constructed from five layers glued together in a vacuum-press system. The work sees the wood pushed to its physical limit and skilfully manipulated to bend against its natural grain. It is finished by sanding and the application of gel varnish to create
a smooth surface.
