Runes, Book 2 is the second mosaic in my “Runes” series. It measures 14 x 32 x 1.75 inches and is composed of stacked painted poplar, cedar, and mahogany woods. The turquoise tiles show the imprints made by using sections of bamboo as “printing blocks” that are dipped in paint and stamped onto a surface.
Many beautiful designs appear when I cut bamboo, especially at the node section, which is the horizontal ridge running around a bamboo stalk. I will be sure to post more of the bamboo blocks that I created – they are exciting and unusual.
