These pieces represent the merging of drawn, fabricated, and implied lines creating a three-dimensional drawing. The pieces also explore the ornamentation and inherent qualities of wood. Burning lines, drilling holes, and adding elements are ways I change the wood. My additions are reactions to what the wood or the initial burnt drawing presents to me in shape, pattern, line, or texture. Kate Furman
