Herringbone Nevelson Collaboration Process

Our process started with thinking of each line within a herringbone pattern as a tiny plank that could be stacked, joined, and reconfigured.  We experimenting with laser cutting and triangular shapes that referenced the zig and zag of herringbone. We added brass as an element and found that the end grain of white oak lent itself beautifully to creating a chevron when cut and laminated strategically. We combined the wooden pieces with brilliantly colored, vegetable dyed woven and circular braided silk. Our tiny wooden sculptures became earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and hairsticks.
