Windfall series

Shayne Dark Windfall Series No. 2, 2015

“The Windfall series is made from applewood burls collected from apple orchards in Prince Edward County. Dark stripped off the bark and allowed the dense burls to dry out, he then filled in the cracks and smoothed them out. When finished he was reminded of the Japanese art Kintsugi. The philosophy that treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than disguising the repair.The forms are soft to the touch – sensuous lines reminiscent of Henry Moore.”
