Pajos are from a series started in 2011. I forge the individual sticks or pajos in groups of 40 in the passionate process described above. The forms change and evolve during the process. Then, in a more contemplative mindset, I compose them into groups of three attaching them to a spiral base. The interplay between the three elements is lyrical, meditative and unpredictable. I've been making them in many sizes up to 8' tall and foresee them getting still bigger. They move nicely in the wind.
