Scimitar Palm

Scimitar Palm

Some years ago, when I was poring through a metal salvage yard, I found this wonderful material -- an aluminum sheet with a delicate green anodized coating. It looks great textured or folded, without any additional treatment. From this material has come this series of work, and many predecessors already in private collections. I think of these as primarily desert dwellers (or is it dessert dwellers), hence the name "Floating Desert".

A simple geometrical study of the palm form, this time of the pointy persuasion. The name says it all...
