Based on a constrained set of materials and construction practices, these wood objects are the result of a systematic modification of basic forms. For the elliptical, oval and circular forms, the surface modification is a response to those geometric constructs. It is important to maintain the fundamental meaning of these things, to make sure that they make no inordinate claims beyond the scope of their materials, and that the objects are true to the pressure of my hand. These wood objects are functional and/or inert. They do not connote another thing, they are self-contained.
