This 32" x 27" x 21" piece is the first one in which I introduced a high contrast color-in this case, black. It changed the focus for me from form to design, allowing me to experiment with negative space. This piece was inspired by a huge piece of coral that I treasure. I'm not sure what the "black" signifies, but I'm glad it's there.
