Traditional joinery was employed in this intarsia inlay. It was hand constructed by the artist using traditional joinery with white pine, cedar, maple, purple-heart and walnut. Vee-grooved pine panel, an old drafting table, provides a field for the intarsia pattern. The repeating squares of the inlays repeat the configuration of the whole with the light and shadow of the grooves repeating in the light and dark woods of the inlay. The inlay is thus the template for the full object as a Seed.
