This sculpture is inspired by the poem “Without” by Gary Snyder:

the silence
of nature
within.

the power within.
the power
without.

the path is whatever passes –no
end in itself.

the end is,
grace – ease –
healing,
not saving.

singing
the proof
the proof of the power within.

My Dad taught me how to use the table saw years ago. I still use the original saw he found for me at a garage sale. It is small enough to move around my studio and perfect for my needs. I built this larger house with wood, sanded, assembled and stained it. The wasp nest, root, and branches were collected along a hiking trail in North Carolina. Grass stalks were added one-by one with tweezers and mud carefully added along the roof edges.
