Crow Cabinet

mahogany, pine, maple, ash, cedar; 23 x 10 x 76 - 1993

A Story cabinet. For me it feels very

autobiographic, a time when something was

released and changed in my life. The crow

represents a part of the psyche that when it's

time is right takes flight without warning, and

yet here I first greet the idea without knowing

what it is and then embrace and offer it freedom

and finally wave at it leaving. The mahogany

case is dovetailed like a big box and the upper

section is fastened with wooden nails. The

drawer has fine hand cut dovetails and contains

a crow feather. The stand is of fir and has been

mortise and tenoned, and colored with a dark

green water based dye.
