This is fascinating, Gwen. Do you remember Kyong Ae Cho's piece in the 1997 QN? Slices of wood -- a very large, magnificent piece.

Thanks for the listing -- it's always worth looking at your blog!

Hi Clairan,

I didn't remember it, but just looked it up and saw a close-up of it on her web site -

It's an extraordinary piece. Thanks so much for sharing that.
