Sneak Preview: Double Bass Volute

It has been part of the intent of our mosaic collaboration to reexamine with sculptural mosaic, forms handed down through history which are the product of the woodcarvers art. If our present culture has any support for the continuation of this art/craft, its locus eludes me. In the spirit of post-modern irony it seems best to celebrate forms indigenous to woodcarving by translating them into mosaic. See them again for the first time. We are constantly on the lookout. While waiting for Edgar Meyer and Bela Fleck to walk onstage at Mass MoCA, the image of a fiddlehead volute popped into my head. Here's a sneak preview. This piece will depart from the strict form of the double bass head, but then again, so does Edgar Meyer's.
