Globe, January 2008, Length: +/- 90 cm Wide: +/- 80 cm Weight: +/- 200 kilo

Preliminary to the creation of this work I found a strange hole in the forest ground, that I imagined to be an impact crater. I fantasied a similar sized round ball could be the fictional cause of this crater. The globe is made out of one piece of solid wood. During the creation process experiment and actual production went hand in hand. This resulted in a non-perfect round shape, similar to the form of a pebble.
