Texture fascinates me. I use natural objects such as seedpods, bones, lichen, and dried cactus skins, often mingled with bits and pieces from my obsolete computer, to create texture on slabs. It’s fun to see high tech markings dance in tandem with organic texture and come alive in the material of one of the oldest technologies on earth.
