Cinder Cone book

With a flurry of action a book sculpture was quickly realized these past two months. Starting from the bare bones of some discarded parts, Cinder Cone quickly fell into place. Images from older research trips to Mt. Lassen National Park were assembled. The slip cover was made towards the final parts were decided upon. Using zebra wood on the top and bottom to mimic faux pages, similar in respect to the book box's i've been making. The theme of positive and negative spaces as well as flipped imagery a quotation from one of my past book sculpture that my friend Bob owns now called Wilderness.
