My intended work at the Muong Studio is to create a large scale, on site standing figure constructed from bamboo. It would be consistent with the type of figurative work I currently do that is based on observations from the natural world. I envision an approximate height of 12 feet with the bamboo sections lashed together with an appropriate binding with the use of wood screws if necessary.
In addition to this main project I would also like to take time for working on some smaller scale figurative sculptures and works on paper as a way of responding to the surrounding environment.
