This vessel—titled Podling—was carved from a damaged mahogany tree

The source of wood used in the creation of “Podling” was a large mahogany tree damaged by Hurricane Andrew. The intricate weaving is of leather, reed, raw wool fiber and palm nuts found on the streets of West Kendall, Miami. Seedpod forms were influential in this design, suggesting an illusion of birth and regeneration.
