Reflections and the play of light and shadow on the surfaces always change the appearance of a piece. To create the most beautiful and pleasing forms, the lines are critical. The edges are the first decisions that I must make when I start carving the urethane form. Meanwhile, I need to imagine the curve of all the lines of a form when it is completed. If the lines and the surfaces harmonize perfectly, I feel that I have fully expressed the beauty of the lacquer as a material.
